VFW to Deliver Veterans’ Voice to Congress

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Next weekend, more than 500 members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., the nation’s largest and oldest war veterans’ organization begin rallying in Washington, D.C., to voice the concerns of veterans directly with the nation’s lawmakers during the 2017 VFW Legislative Conference, Feb. 26 – March 2.

The annual conference strengthens the VFW’s advocacy efforts on behalf of America’s veterans, service members and their families, as VFW members meet with elected representatives in the House and Senate to discuss the VFW’s stance on a number of high priority veterans’ issues.

The 2017 VFW Legislative Conference culminates on March 1, as VFW National Commander Brian Duffy testifies before a joint hearing of the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees, where he will lay out the VFW’s top legislative priorities for the year. Other highlights will include the presentation of the VFW Congressional Award to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), the Voice of Democracy Parade of Winners, and the announcement of the national Voice of Democracy first-place $30,000 scholarship winner.

The VFW will again livestream from this year’s conference.
