For more than 90 years, the VFW's Buddy Poppy program as raised millions of dollars in support or veterans' welfare and the well-being of their dependents.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
