**Because the order prices have increased (and because we have been selling our flags for the same prices for the last 10 years), we must now increase the selling price of our flags effective May 1st, 2019. Checks payable to VFW Post 9662 Auxiliary. See the links on the left for individual prices or click here.

Do you eat at Burger King??
Check out this letter from the VFW National Commander, B.J. Lawrence. Next time you stop into your local Burger King, ask for the manager and share a thank you for their support of the VFW Unmet Needs program. Burger King franchise owners have generously donated more than $6 million to this vital VFW Program. Help us spread our appreciation next time you stop by.

See the Buddy Poppy Page to learn more about the history of the Buddy Poppy! http://vfw9662.org/?page_id=643
The “Buddy”® Poppy is assembled by disabled and needy veterans in VA medical facilities. Proceeds from the VFW “Buddy”® Poppy program: • Provide compensation to the veterans who assemble the poppies. • Provide financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans’ rehabilitation and service programs. • Partially supports the VFW National Home for Children. www.vfw.org | www.vfwauxiliary.org
Another great tool is the Buddy Poppy Chairman’s handbook. It contains great information about the program. Check it out here
