The Veteran’s Voice on The Hill

“We are still a nation at war,” said VFW National Commander William A. Thien, “and our duty is to end the sequester and fight continued attempts to force veterans, service members and their families to shoulder an unfair share of the nation’s debt, fight for advance appropriations for all VA accounts, and fight to preserve the safety and security of the United States and the continued viability of the All-Volunteer Military.”

Aleethia’s “Friday Night Dinner” was hosted by the Veterans of Foreign Wars at the National Press Club. VFW National Commander William Thien, National President of Ladies Auxilary to VFW, “Sissy” Borel and other VFW representatives greeted and met with each wounded/injured/ill service member during the dinner.

VFW National Commander Thien told the group that the VFW is the veterans’ voice on the Hill … “we are here to advocate on behalf of all veterans.” The VFW vision is to “ensure that veterans are respected for their service, always receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.”

Over 85 wounded/injured/ill service members, family members and VFW guests enjoyed a four-course dinner including a rather large “porterhouse steak,” as well as, wishing a Happy Birthday to a service woman currently recovering at Walter Reed.
