Here is what Department President Marvie had to say about her pin:
“My President’s pin has a lot of meaning for me. The Flag flying in the
background, what could be more patriotic! It also reminds me of my father
flying his Flag with pride every day.
The boots represent a call to action. In the Military, “Boots on the Ground”
means our soldiers have been called to action, are at war and in combat.
Calling the Auxiliary to action encourages our members to be more active
in providing assistance to and improving the lives of our Veterans and their
families. Additionally, the call to the Auxiliaries to put “Boots on the Ground”
is to remind them of their duty to actively promote patriotism, honor of
country and the freedoms we have because of our Veterans.”
President’s pins sell for $3.00 each. A portion of the proceeds will go toward Department President Marvie’s special Project, Road Home, which works with the Veteran and the entire family to deal with PTSD.
The goal is to sell all of this year’s pins. This can only be achieved with each and every District, Auxiliary and member’s help and participation. Each District President has received an initial supply of pins to distribute among the Auxiliaries in his/her District. Additional pins are available upon request and will be sent promptly.
Purchasing a President’s pin will not only help the Department VFW Auxiliary expand and improve Military and Veteran Programs, but wearing it will remind the community of the past sacrifices and continuing needs of our Veterans.
District Presidents, please send payment for pins earmarked “President’s Pin” to Department Pin Chairman Tina Krueger, 3241 S. Racine Street, Chicago, IL 60608 and make your check payable to “Department of Illinois VFW Auxiliary”.
Deadline to have all money turned in is May 1, 2023
