VFW Post 3088 is Proud to participate in the parade and festivities in Jacksonport on Memorial Day. Although Mayfest has been canceled because of the coronavirus we are still hopeful we will be able to have some type of event on Memorial Day to honor our fallen heroes
From its inception, the Buddy Poppy Program has helped the VFW live up to its motto, "to honor the dead by helping the living." The Buddy Poppy - small red flower symbolic of the blood shed in World War I by millions of Allied soldiers in defense of freedom - was originally sold to provide relief for the people of wardevastated France. Later, its sale directly benefited thousands of disabled and down-and-out American veterans.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
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.

A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
Ask not what your country can do for you, ask you can do for your country.
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
