Join the VFW at the VANC this Memorial Day. Christina Robledo, our Senior Vice Commander, said it best when writing about Memorial Day:
It was not until the National Holiday Act of 1971 that Memorial Day became the last Monday in May. A day to honor and remember those who died serving our country. This is a powerful and important holiday. A day of remembrance doesn’t have to be a sad occasion, rejoice in the freedoms that you were given and thank them by appreciating what they have sacrificed.
Let us honor the brave men and women who sacrificed so much for us this Memorial Day. We look forward to seeing you there and don’t forget to wear your buddy poppy.
