YOU BELONG IN THE VFW! Join Australia's first VFW Post. As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. For membership information, please email the Senior Vice Commander at Svc@vfw12163.org or send a message via the Post's Facebook page. ALL U.S. VETERANS ARE WELCOME!
In support of Memorial Day and Rememberance Day, members of Post 12163 will be distributing Buddy Poppies in partnership with the Shenton Park RSL. The VFW Buddy Poppy program provides compensation through donations to the Veterans who assemble the poppies, provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national Veterans' rehabilitation and service programs, and partially supports the VFW National Home For Children.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
