Department of Missouri has partnered with a company called PCI and their theme is "Share Your Story" to give veterans a chance to share their military experience. After researching and talking with other states who have participated PCI was proven to be legitimate and they have received the money promised by the company who have been doing this for years. You will receive a postcard in the mail showing our address at headquarters, then in a bold box stating "Important: Verification of member data now needed," and your name and address below it. This is a very good partnership because this will reach all members of the department, and will get the most accurate information for us "Free!" on our members. This project is strictly volunteer to participate in and from looking at the sample books provided to us from the company there were some pretty interesting stories in the states they provided examples of, our book will be exclusive of Missouri veterans stories only. I will participate because it will give an account of the things that I've done in my 20 years, 1 day and 5 hours of service. IT IS NOT A SCAM MO FAMILY. Any questions call Don at HQ or myself thank you.

DEPARTMENT FOOD PANTRY
The Department hosts the Mid-Mo Military Family Pantry at our Department Headquarters, 3401 Knipp Drive, Jefferson City, MO. The Pantry is open on Thursdays from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. However, if a veteran or his family is in immediate need, they can call the Department office at 573-636-8761 for assistance. We will do accept cold food donations.
The POW/MIA Chairman, Joe Cerchi, would like those posts whose Auxiliary goes "above and beyond" in their support of VFW POW/MIA Programs to send an email to him outlining what makes them special so that their efforts may be recognized.

A satirical reflection by Author/Artist Phil Fehrenbacher
Phil enlisted in the Army in 1965 where you served for years in Vietnam. He became a graphic designer and has worked for the state of Oregon for 26 years. He retired in 2003 and started the Cartoon "In-Country". The cartoons reflect his experiences during his tour of duty in South Vietnam.
There is a new cartoon everyday.
...we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.
WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Kosovo, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War on Global Terror and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
Ask not what your country can do for you, ask you can do for your country.
Our programs support our service members while they are on the front line, as they are being discharged and long after they return. Your tax-deductible donation will be immediately directed to the VFW programs where your support is most urgently needed.
