VFW Elects New National Leadership

National VFW - 8/4/2017

The 118th VFW National Convention ended Wednesday in New Orleans with the election of Keith E. Harman as the new VFW commander-in-chief for the year 2017-2018. During his acceptance speech, the Delphos, Ohio, native spoke of the relevance of the nearly 1.7 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliary, that, "every member of our great organization has walked the talk, and every member of our great Auxiliary has lived the fear of having a loved one downrange." He said he is proud to be part of an organization that exists to take care of veterans, service members and their families, and that he is honored to lead it. His theme for his year is "Service not Self," and his goals are to end sequestration, to fully fund the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, to demand better leadership, management and accountability from the Department of Veterans Affairs and to help reduce the veteran suicide crisis to zero. Also elected were Senior Vice Commander-in-Chief Vincent "B.J.” Lawrence of Alamogordo, N.M., and Junior Vice Commander-in-Chief William J. "Doc” Schmitz of Corning, N.Y. Read more here.
