Waterfowlers for Warriors 22 Mile Veteran's Suicide Awareness Walk on June 8th was a huge success with many walkers turning out to participate. The walk began at Edmore VFW Post 2292 at 5:30 a.m. and ended at our Post with a meal for the walkers. We were honored to once again welcome the Spartan Sword and pleased to assist Waterfowlers for Warriors in their effort to raise awareness for this worthy cause.

Family, Farm & Home in Alma, Michigan recently held a "Buy One/Give One" promotion to collect snacks for Active Duty Military personnel stationed overseas. VFW Post 1454's Auxiliary offered their assistance by volunteering to pack & ship the treats collected overseas. It was an awesome surprise to receive photos back from our Troops stationed in Kuwait.
Our Post & Auxiliary is dedicated to serving our Veterans, Active Duty Military & our community. There are many ways YOU can be involved! Join us for a monthly meal or one of our many events - Public Welcome! Stop by the Post to meet our Members or visit our Facebook page. Volunteer opportunities are available for Post & Auxiliary Members and non-members alike.
