Review for Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children, Eaton Rapids, MI, USA
When I rejoined the VFW Auxiliary in 2012 I started hearing about the VFW National Home For Children and had no idea what it was. So I started listening and asking questions about it. I was amazed when I heard how long it had been around and all of the amazing things they had done for children of veterans and now more recently what they do for veterans and their families. I said how does everyone not know about this wonderful place. I was so excited when the VFW and auxiliary of Iowa decided to do a bus trip up to the National Home. It changed my life forever... When I toured the whole site and then the Iowa home that we sponsor I was just amazed.. The highlight was attending the Halloween party for the kids and having the opportunity to speak with the parents and kids. I will never forget that day and all of the people who live on site and then all of the people who are there to help in any way possible to make sure these families are safe and have the opportunity to get established and back on their feet to make a better life for themselves and their family. Please take the time to learn about the VFW National Home for Children and the help they provide for veterans and their families. I promise you, you will be forever changed.
