Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children
June 8, 2013
I have been associated with the VFW National Home for Children since 2001 and am a Life Member of the home. I continue to support it with monetary donations. This past year as the VFW Department of Maryland State Commander, I selected the home as one of my Special Projects. We raised in excess of twenty two thousand dollars for the home, but more importantly, we also added 112 new Life Members from the department. This is significant in that anyone, even a non Veteran, can become a Life Member of the National Home by making a one time donation of thirty fiver dollars. I have also visited the home on several occasions and am very impressed in the way it operates under the leadership of Patrice Green and the other employee's. It is a wonderful place for the children and families of our veterans to reside in the many houses that our VFW Departments have adopted and fund. The children attend school and are not only educated throughout their time living there, but also are involved in many worth projects that teach them the tools they will need to succeed in life. May God continue to bless our National Home, our veterans and their families for their service to our country.

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
nationally publicize all the accomplishments the home has achieved in changing the lifes of its many residents during its existence. This is a role model home that has turned children's lifes around.
