 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.
