I was told for thirty years I could not join my local
V.F.W. . Because I was in the service when their was no wars between April 5 1976 to Aug.25. 1979 Well come to find out I could join the V.F.W. because I was in the Cav. and on the Border with a loaded small arms when I was patroling the border. Yes it's true. I got my membership pin today handed to me. NOW I FEEL LIKE A REAL VETERAN to me it was a great deal.
I hope this can help any Veteran if like to be a V.F.W. Member. If he was told that he could not join because the same reason The dates when he served.
