The VFW grassroots advocacy network is comprised of
more than 25,000 volunteers who email, write, call and visit lawmakers
to discuss issues that will directly impact veterans, active duty military and
their families. Members are encouraged to contact their legislators on a
wide-variety of VFW-supported issues, working hand-in-hand with National
Action Corps members help influence the passage or defeat of federal
legislation based on the VFW's priority goals by visiting and writing
- To inform and educate members and supporters
on initiatives and policies that affect veterans.
- To communicate and promote the VFW
viewpoint before Congress.
- To encourage greater grassroots
participation in the democratic process through increased communication
with congressional officials.
Also, Action Corps relies on its members to establish and
maintain a relationship with their legislators, as well as to keep their
lawmakers informed about key veterans and military issues and educate them on
VFW's legislative agenda.
