Having joined the VFW Auxiliary under the eligibility of my husband, Mick, a Vietnam Veteran, I am a Life Member of Auxiliary #1308, Alton in the 12th District. We are both retired and enjoying life in rural Jersey County.
I am happy to be a part of the 2022-2023 ”Boots on the Ground for Our Veterans” team. As Reports Coordinator, I will be assisting our Program Chairmen in keeping track of all those reports that come in and are documented on the X-Sheet. I will also be tracking all of the statistical data from each of the report forms. These figures are very important! This information is compiled and sent to the VFW twice a year, which helps when they are addressing Veteran concerns on Capitol Hill. We also forward this information on to our National Department to be used for the VFW Auxiliary Fact Sheet. Reporting all that we do for our Veterans not only helps our Veterans, it shows how great this Organization really is; which is a wonderful tool in recruiting new members.
The Department’s goal is to be 100% reported in all Programs by December 31, 2022. I know that we all have “Hands that Serve; Hearts that Care” and that we constantly have our “Boots on the Ground for Our Veterans” by providing assistance to and improving their lives and the lives of their families. We just need to take the next step and make sure to fill out that report form and get it sent in.
I am only a phone call or an e-mail away, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
