The Department has scheduled free summer Officer Training events to help Post Officers understand and fulfill their duties. These sessions are of great importance to both new and experienced Post officers. The format will be a combination of brief presentations, breakouts and question-and-answer periods.
Even if you have attended one of these sessions before, you will benefit from the updates, rules changes and new discussion opportunities. Each Post is encouraged to send several officers to create teamwork. State HQs will mail details to Post Commanders. Dress is casual with VFW Cap. All sessions begin at 9 a.m. (coffee/donuts at 8 a.m.; lunch at noon) except as otherwise noted.
