Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children
June 25, 2012

I am a member of the Ladies Auxiiary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. We have a program for this organization. We have events to raise money for donations to this wonderful place. I recently had the opportunity to take a tour of the facility. It's beautiful! Each home is sponsored by a state VFW or Cootie. The staff are some of the nicest, most helpful people I've ever met. We, the Dept of Kentucky VFW, sponsored the Fishing Derby this year for the children. We fished, had a cookout and provided prizes. Some of the patients from two of the local VA hospitals were brought in to share in the day's event. The Home provides shelter, clothing, food and training for military families accross the country who have fallen on hard times, either through the deployment or loss of their military spouse, or, when both parents have been deployed or lost and there are no other family to help. The children go to school and are taken care of until they are 18. Then, the Home pays for their college. Our military has given and continues to give and pay the ultimate price for our country. This VFW National Home for Children is just one of the ways we can give back.
