Veterans and their experiences play an important role in educating our nation's youth about the founding principles upon which this country was founded. Through the VFW's "Veterans in the Classroom" community outreach initiative, a VFW member is able to assist the teacher in conveying a variety of American history lessons. Our members are "living history" and can provide students with insight into the great sacrifices our service members make to maintain freedom for all of us.  November is VFW's "Veterans in the Classroom" month!  Please visit this website to find out more about this program and to download the pamphlet (the link is near the bottom of the web page.)  If you have any questions, please contact VFW Programs Coordinator Tammy Beauchamp 816-756-3390 ext 287.

If you are a VFW member interested in volunteering for this important activity, please visit www.vfw.org and log in.  That will take you to the MY VFW page, where you should click on the VFW Training Area.  Dowload and read the "Community Activites & Citizenship Education Chairman's Manual." Again, if you have any questions at any time, please e-mail Tammy Beauchamp or call her at (816) 756-3390 ext 287.
