WHO WHO WHO are we!!!  We ARE  the Department of Florida and  it is a new day and a New Year!  Hold on to your hats and let’s enjoy this experience together!!

What an honor it is for me to be able to serve as your Department President for 2020-2021.  I have so enjoyed every minute that I have spent working my way through the chairs to reach this position and I thank-you all for putting your faith in me to perform as your Department of Florida President.

As many know, my husband Glen is the 2020-2021 VFW, Dept. of Florida Commander.  We are used to doing everything together which is what we chose “Teamwork Makes The Dream Work” for our joint theme. We decided to have the same shirt and pin as well. Our Heart shaped pin reflects the love we have for our veterans, their families, the community and our organization. The inclusion of both the VFW emblem and the Auxiliary emblem express the love and respect we have for each other. The banner and state outline speaks for itself.

I would like to invite you and all your members to attend our School of Inspiration on August 7-9th . With so many new members as well new officers, I know it can get a bit overwhelming.  I’ve been there.  I want to assure you that I am here to help you in any way that I can.  Please do not hesitate to call or email me.  If I don’t have the answer, I will get it for you.

By attending the School of Inspiration you will have a better grasp of what you need to do to make this a successful year and we will be holding a question and answer session with the hopes of giving you what you need.

Our National President Sandra Onstwedder has chosen “Honoring Our Mission To Serve Veterans” as her theme and what better way to do this than by working as a Team with our Veterans to make Florida GREAT!

2020-2021 President
