JOIN THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS
 
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the  Global War on Terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
 
If you have received a campaign medal for overseas service; have served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea; or have ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay, then you're eligible to join our ranks.

District and Post QM/ADJ Membership Challenge
 
Membership challenge to each District and Post Quartermaster and Adjutant.

The objective is to increase the membership of the Department of South Carolina and reward the District and Post QM/ADJ that are working to meet this goal.

For each month, a District or Post reaches the Department membership goal the Quartermaster will be placed into a QM pool and the Adjutant into a ADJ pool for a drawing of a $200 gift card to the VFW Store.  If the Post has combined the QM/ADJ into one position that QM/ADJ will be placed into the QM pool for the drawing. 

The use of this card is up to the discretion of the winner. 

When a District of Post reaches the maximum Department goal of 105% or greater as indicated in the Commanders book, they will be entered for that month only and removed from the following months. 

Drawings will be the 1st Wednesday of the following month and selected by the Department QM and ADJ.
