Message by Kevin C. Jones, Adjutant General, VFW National Headquarters:
Effective immediately all non-essential travel through May 10, 2020 has been cancelled. This includes national representative travel, the upcoming NVS Training May 4 – 8 in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and the suspension of the Commander’s in Chief seminar May 2 – 8 in Jamaica. We are working now with the resort to determine the possibility of rescheduling the CinC’s trip in September. More to come on this trip as we continue to work with VTS and the resort.
So you know, we have put in place a contingency plan for our employees effective today. We’ve expanded our flexibility of telework to many employees of the VFW National Headquarters and Washington DC office for the immediate future as a precautionary response to COVID-19 pandemic. As this situation continues to progress, we will continue to address non-essential and essential travel.
We’ve attached guidance for all departments along with an Executive Order from the Commander-in-Chief. The Executive Order will remain in place until rescinded.
As America’s largest combat organization, the health and well-being of our members, partners, associates and communities is our top priority. The VFW has a job to do and a solemn promise to keep those veterans, service members, and their families for which we work. Now more than ever we must find solutions in the face of adversity and strive to meet the needs of those who rely on the vital services we provide.
