Membership Update
 
As of 3-11-2019, the Department of New Hampshire membership totals is 93.83%.

We have about 4 months remaining to renew, reinstate, and recruit 396 members to reach our goal of 100%.

Comrades, We need you! Contact your unpaid members, consider paying the dues of your elderly, sick, financially needy, or deployed members. (Post relief funds can be used). We are approaching the finish line and now is the time to put it in full gear. We can’t do it without you. Every member, every post, every district counts. 

Please email membership chairman, jjkroehler@gmail.com  or call the State Headquarters at  603-715-5579  or Greg Lynch at 603-347-1951 if you need any assistance in processing dues, getting your post membership roster, or getting a list of unpaid members in your areas. 

Please remember the Commander-in-Chief B.J. Lawrence has issued another Commander’s Challenge for the month of March. In the same vein as the February challenge, the goal will be to show membership growth in the Post through the month, comparing the Post’s paid member total at close of business today, February 28th versus where they stand at the end of the day on March 31st (which is a Sunday, but members entered via OMS before the system updates will be counted).

 

This time, however, the top TEN Posts in each membership division will be entered into a drawing (one per division) for that $1,000 to be deposited into their Post Fund. As with February’s challenge, Posts will be able to log onto www.vfw.org and see their status for the Challenge – recruit and retain, hold a spot in that top ten, and not only will you be helping us MAKE IT HAPPEN by reaching 100% membership, but you’ll have a chance to directly reward your Post for their dedication to the mission!

 The MOC Pup Tents NH 1 and 3 have accepted the invitation by the NH Veterans Home to conduct, back by popular demand, our  very successful  Spring BBQ again. We plan to be at the NHVH on  Sun May 19, 2019, with the food to be served by our Cooties and friends starting at noon. We will coordinate all the details when we get closer to the date of the BBQ. 

Any and all Cooties are invited to participate. It's a fun day, greatly appreciated by our Veterans Home residents and staff. You can come up just to visit and spend time with the residents, or if you're able and willing to follow instructions, you can help out with the residents and cooking and serving the food. It's a great time for all. 
Rain or shine, we are flexible with the unpredictable NE weather and the party will go on, inside or outside, weather permitting.

Yours in LOTCS

TREES FOR TROOPS

There’s nothing like the smell of a fresh tree to get you into the holiday spirit, and no one is more deserving of a little Christmas cheer than our service members and their families. Since 2005 the Trees for Troops program, run by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, has provided farm grown Christmas trees to our service members overseas and their families in the United States. 2017 is a banner year for the program, reaching more than 200,000 trees delivered and covering every branch of the military at close to 65 bases in 17 countries.

Take Action on Blue Water Navy bill

In July, the House of Representatives unanimously passed H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2018, to end the injustice of denying Vietnam, Korean DMZ, and Thailand veterans who suffer from life-threatening health conditions the care and benefits they deserve. This important bill continues to be stalled in the Senate. The VFW needs your help to make sure this bill is passed before the end of the year. If the Senate fails to do so, the bill will die and may never be considered again.
