Warrior Hike – “Walk Off the War”

My name is Mike Sepal, and I work with a veteran nonprofit organization called Warrior Hike (www.warriorhike.org). Warrior Hike is an outdoor therapy program that supports combat veterans transitioning from their military service by thru-hiking America’s National Scenic Trails. This spring and summer we have two veterans that will be hiking all 1,200 miles of the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin from May 3 to August 1, 2015. Listed below are the 14 VFW Posts in Wisconsin where the two Warrior Hikers will be stopping to receive support during their hike on the Ice Age Trail. By hosting our veterans in their communities they are providing them with a much needed rest from their journey in addition to helping them reintegrate into society by establishing meaningful relationships between them and the community’s veterans and citizens. Listed below is a list of the recommended types of support that are the most beneficial to our veterans who are hiking the Ice Age Trail: Transportation: Providing rides to and from the trail head is greatly appreciated, especially when communities are located farther than … Continue reading

Limited Ticket $30,000 Vehicle Raffle Is Underway!

Since our recent State VFW Midwinter Conference, raffle tickets have been distributed to participating Wisconsin VFW Posts as we set out to secure additional funding for our State Veterans Service Office and other supporting projects serving Wisconsin Veterans. If your Post does not have tickets to sell, please contact your District Commander. Ticket sales are limited to 30,000 only, so the odds are very good for participants. In addition to a $30,000 top prize which may be used toward a vehicle of your choice from one of Wisconsin’s largest auto dealerships, Bergstrom Automotive, there are also other cash prizes to be awarded as well. If you are a friend of Veterans, please contact your nearby VFW Post and ask for a ticket. The $10 ticket price is a small enough risk but adds up fast to make a big difference in our ability to take care of all Wisconsin Veterans! Thank you for your support! Can’t find a local Post selling these great tickets? Contact our State Headquarters Office for help! (608) 221-5276
