Buddy Poppy Drive at Ft. Meyer

Post 3150 will be conducting a Buddy Poppy drive at the Commissary on Joint Base Myer - Henderson Hall on Saturday, 20 May 2017! 

Stop by and say hello and get your Buddy Poppy to wear proudly over Memorial Day weekend.

*********************************************
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Post and Auxiliary Members - We are looking for volunteers to donate 2 hours of their time (8-10am; 10-12pm; 1-2pm) to help with this event! To volunteer, please sign up through this link by Monday, 15 May 2017, http://signup.com/go/gIJimJN. You do not need a CAC in order to volunteer for this event.
*********************************************
Since 1922, the Buddy Poppy has been an integral part of the VFW community. As the VFW’s official memorial flower, the Poppy represents the blood shed by American service members. It reiterates that VFW will not forget their sacrifices.

The Buddy Poppies we distribute are made by disabled, hospitalized, and aging veterans. VFW pays the disabled veteran for the work. In most cases, this extra money provides additional income for the worker to pay for the little luxuries, which make hospital life more tolerable. Furthermore, Poppy assembly is often used as a therapy program to provide exercise for fingers and hands crippled by wounds, disease, and the effects of old age.
Buddy Poppies are distributed by volunteers and they are free of charge to the recipient. 

Any donations that VFW Post 3150 receives from Poppy distribution go directly to the assistance of needy veterans and members of the Armed Forces and their dependents, widows, and orphans (i.e. the Post Relief Fund).

Buddy Poppy distribution is all about veterans helping veterans, connecting with our community, and living up to the VFW’s motto of “Honor the Dead by Helping the Living.”
