2022-2023 Legislative Outreach Program

Legislative action is a core pillar of the VFW that provides life changing support for its members and the veterans community at large. Further, as the VFW leads on issues that help our veterans, our leadership can inspire others to join us as Comrades in our organization. Over the course of the next 12 months, the VFW Department of Michigan will be working relentlessly, fighting on issues at the state and national levels that are of dire importance to the health and safety of our community. We will be tackling the issues of toxic exposure and the need for presumption of benefits, VA drug over-prescribing and the suicides of veterans under VA care. Additionally, we will be working on a variety of issues that are part of the VFW National Legislative Agenda, which are needed for the betterment of our community. To that end, we will only be successful if our Posts and Districts engage with their elected officials, fighting for the welfare and benefits of our veterans and their families.
