It is my honor to serve this 2023 – 2024 term of office as your Legislative Chairman.  We are asking all our members to “Be A Warrior” for our Veterans.

Working together with our VFW Posts we can make our voices heard all across this State and Nation.  I will do my best to keep you informed of our Legislative goals and how we can help the National Organization carry our voices and goals to the halls of Congress and the Statehouse of Illinois.

Now is the time to organize your Auxiliary program by reviewing the Department and National program and setting an agenda to work toward.  Once you have completed a project PLEASE REPORT.  We have always asked you to be reported by December 31, but I am striving to have all Auxiliaries reported by December 15.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you need help.

Looking forward to working with and hearing from you.
