HUMANA & VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS POST 2702 ARE UNITING TO COMBAT HUNGER One in eight people are experiencing food insecurities right now and one in four Veterans are also affected by this. 22 Veterans commit suicide each day. No one should have to experience or endure these insecurities. We appreciate your Call to Action "Uniting to Combat Hunger 2021" in the Community. Thank you in advance for your participation.
LOOK FOR YOURS IN THE MAIL TODAY Special thanks to the Bylaw committee, Earl Thomas, Letha Bradford, Eric Drake, Ruben Bradford and April Thomas for all of your volunteer hours and dedication to the post Special Thanks to HUMANA for paying for our Mailouts/Postage.
Come join us at the Redstone Rocket Harley Davidson on 7 August and enjoy some food, fun and prizes. We will be partnering up with Humana in the fight to Combat Hunger in our Community and support our local food banks. The Project is called "Uniting to Combat Hunger". We will also have an educational table set up to promote our Post and all the activities and projects we currently have going on. All proceeds will go to the Food Bank of North Alabama.

Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over.

WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Kosovo, War in Afghanistan, War in Iraq, War on Global Terror and other Peace-Keeping Expeditionary Campaigns throughout the globe.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a Nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.
