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.

To become one of the 'elite' come to the Ballwin VFW Post 6274, 115 Mimosa Ln, Ballwin, MO 63011 or call us at 636-527-9555. E-Mail:

Our Veterans Service Officer (VSO) Fred Gilbert, will provide you with membership information.
