    town (2500) who are member of the VFW and Am Legion who do unbelievable amounts of charity work and I know most of them and they are against the war, want it ended ASAP and they organize our parades on memorial day, fourth of july, labor day and veterans day and are in NO way seen as a political organization by the people in our town. Just guys who served and now have the commradery of their fellow soldiers and collect for charities and do many charitable acts.
