JOIN THE VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS
Post 152's current members are veterans of foreign service in all of the United States conflicts from World War II thru today's foreign duty assignments.
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the Global War on Terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.
If you have received a campaign medal for overseas service; have served 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days in Korea; or have ever received hostile fire or imminent danger pay, then you're eligible to join our ranks.
You are also most welcome to attend one of our monthly meetings. Join us on the 1st Monday of every month at 7PM at the Beechwood Center 44 Beach Street at the North Kingstown town beach.
