VFW since 1972. My son signed me up for the American Legion last year so that he could access to the post lake for fishing. Sooo...VFW and American Legion here.

You might be interested in the SVA Seabee Veterans of America. They have islands (chapters) all across the US.
I've been a member for about a year and a half.

Thanks NVSeabee! I had looked at their page some time ago and had forgotten the name. I will have to look into it again!

VFW, American Legion, 101st Airborne Division Association. I spent two years with the 82nd, but don't feel connected enough to that outfit to join up with the 82nd Association.

Also sit on the board of a local umbrella organization - County Veteran Council. It is a liaison organization that assists the various veteran offices, local government, community, and various veteran service organizations to work more effectively in serving county veterans.

I also had a bad experience with the VFW. I tried to join when I got back from Vietnam and was told that "We don't want your kind." They would only accept Vietnam vets that were officers or senior NCO's.
