V is for VFW aka Veterans of Foreign Wars. My father was a member all of my life even serving as the commander (aka like a club president) in the late 60’s. A lot of fun times were spent with my parents at the VFW and we ate a lot of meals there with friends of my parents. Definitely a big part of their social life when I was growing up. The VFW is just one of the veteran organizations in town that perform Taps, a 21-gun salute and fold the flag at funerals for veterans. They did this for my dad’s funeral. I became an auxiliary member on my 21st birthday. My parents gave me a lifetime membership that day.
