State Commander John Schmidt

VFW Deptartment of Connecticut John C. Schmidt

"Dedicated to support all Veterans"

      As we move into the 2016-2017 year, I want you to know what a great honor it is for me to serve as your Department Commander, and to serve all veterans and their families of our great state. Our number one priority in the VFW and our Auxiliaries, is insure that all the benefits they have earned, and will earn for their service is not diminished or taken away.

Throughout the years it has become more incumbent upon us, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, to make sure that our congressmen and senators understand that they have an obligation to the brave men and women that served this great country, to provide the VA with the proper funding needed to allow each and every one of them to receive the competent, compassionate medical health care that they were promised, and richly deserve.

Looking ahead, we will have even more to do in the future as the war on terrorism continues and additional troops are deployed.

I will continue, with your help, the great work that has been done in the past and continue to provide the best service possible to all of our veterans.
