At the State level, we focus on state legislation that protects the benefits already gained on behalf of veterans. We champion new issues on behalf of veterans that will enhance their quality of life that may have been impacted as a result of their service to our Nation. All politics are local. Our grassroots advocacy efforts on veterans’ issues begins with us. During the VFW calendar year, we will solicit issues from Post members that will be consolidated and voted on for prioritization. Once prioritized, the issues will be our calling card for visits to Georgia House and Senate representatives. The list will also serve as our report card to determine which leaders are working on our behalf.
