Serving those that defended our freedoms
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group.  Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.


Middle and High School student scholarships are available and open for entries. Teacher of the Year program is open. The Buddy Poppy King and Queen Contest is open. See the Programs tab for more information about how to compete for cash prizes.  


Join us as brothers and sisters of America to preserve the rights of veterans and support each other as only those who share in the camaraderie forged by conflict can.
