VFW Posts throughout the state have
involved themselves in a variety of Safety Programs, which cover
virtually every possible activity. The VFW is actively conducting and
participating in six major categories under which any drug or safety
activity will fall. Almost any drug or safety activity conducted by a
Post can be reported within the six categories. Credit is given only
once for each activity.
This covers a broad spectrum of events such as:
