"An Honor Guard is a group of people who are designated to receive or guard the fallen in war or to attend at ceremonies. The Color Guard presents the National and/or State and organizational colors at an event. The two are not the same. If you have both at an event, you can claim each. However, the mileage for each is separate. If the event is at the post, no mileage is claimed, however, hours are. Also, the submission date is the current date. The activity date is the date the event was held."

DEPARTMENT FOOD PANTRY
The Department hosts the Mid-Mo Military Family Pantry at our Department Headquarters, 3401 Knipp Drive, Jefferson City, MO. The Pantry is open on Thursdays from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. However, if a veteran or his family is in immediate need, they can call the Department office at 573-636-8761 for assistance. We will do accept cold food donations.
The POW/MIA Chairman, Joe Cerchi, would like those posts whose Auxiliary goes "above and beyond" in their support of VFW POW/MIA Programs to send an email to him outlining what makes them special so that their efforts may be recognized.

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.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
