The following table of statistics from VFW Natonal illustrates how the nearly 2 million members of VFW make a difference. There is much of which VFW members may be proud.
Your editor did a little arithmetic with these stats and the results gives Post 8870 good reason to be particularly proud of itself.
Dividng the $12 million dollars raised through the “Buddy Poppy” program nationally by the total number of Posts (6,380) results in an average of $ 1,880 per post for the year. You and I, Comrades, raised well over $ 25,000 in 2017, or thirteen times the national average!
