Veterans of Foreign Wars - Stamford CT
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo, Persian Gulf, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
