VFW to Stream Live from the Nation’s Capital

VFW Legislative Conference will run March 2-6

 Each year hundreds of VFW leaders converge on the Hill, taking the voice of America’s veterans directly to congressional dignitaries and lawmakers during the VFW Legislative Conference.

Armed with the VFW’s Legislative Priority Goals for 2013, VFW advocates plan to visit with every congressional office, explaining in detail the VFW’s stance on a variety of veterans’ issues like access to VA benefits, military quality-of-life programs, economic opportunity and health care.

The week culminates with the testimony of VFW Commander-in-Chief John Hamilton before a special joint hearing of the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees on March 5, where Hamilton will lay out the VFW’s legislative agenda for the year.

VFW’s live stream of the conference will begin on March 3 at 6:00 p.m. (EST) with the annual Voice of Democracy Parade of Winners, followed by streaming video of VFW Commander-in-Chief John Hamilton’s testimony on the afternoon of March 5.
