I'm the widow of a WW11 & Korean vet .

The mission of the post is to help vets and widows . The commander hated me and let it be known in every way he could .He would cuss me out and miss treated me all the time .When I complained it only got worse .I was fired for no reason on July 7,2010 and now on unemployment and have filed a lawsuit against my post .
The VFW Foundation is a partner of the Kansas City Chiefs Football Club. They have significantly enhanced and accelerated our efforts at supporting our nation's finest, our servicemen and women. Through their Return the Favor program, Chiefs fans have been able to witness firsthand the class and dignity in which the VFW Foundation takes care of our troops. From providing tickets to Chiefs games, to highlighting stories of active duty military around the world, they play an integral part in the way we encourage our fans to Return the Favor. VFW Foundation has gone above and beyond as we have gone to military bases and veteran's hospitals around the region to spread goodwill and encourage the men and women in uniform. We are eager to continue to build on the strength of our partnership in the years to come.
Unfortunately, many American soldiers and veterans do not have access to the financial support and essential resources they need while on active duty or when they come home. VFW Foundation realizes it is up to us to serve them when they need us the most.
Funded solely by generous and dedicated individuals and corporate sponsors, the RETURN THE FAVOR campaign, sponsored by the VFW Foundation, creates awareness for our veterans’ needs and financially supports programs to assist our deployed soldiers, retired military veterans and their families.
I am deeply impressed by the Foundation's dedication, compassion and perseverance to help our country's brave, selfless veterans.
I had the opportunity to work with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation on several of their military appreciation events with the Kansas City Chiefs and Michigan International Speedway. I have found their staff and board members to be extremely informative about the Return the Favor campaign and it is clear they have a true passion for supporting our military, veterans, and their families.
