LEGISLATIVE

2022-2023 Chairman ~ Ron Boyd
 
The purpose of this program is to urge our legislators to preserve veterans' rights and entitlements and to advocate a strong national defense.  It involves assisting the VFW to pass or block legislation that impacts veterans and their families.  It may include making contact with legislators and sending signed letters regarding pending resolutions and laws.
