Commander Sarmiento and President Eith have agreed to participate in a Joint State Project which will benefit and assist veterans residing in New Jersey.
The NJ VFW Veterans Assistance Program (VAP) will be their joint project for the 2018-2019 year. The program is not meant to replace the local post Relief Fund nor their obligations to assist worthy comrades, veterans, and families. They believe this valuable program will allow the VFW to lend a hand up and not a hand out to our NJ veterans. Funds will only be distributed for the aid, assistance, relief and comfort of needy or disabled veterans or members of the Armed Forces and their dependents. All funds will be distributed by the Department Quartermaster and all requests will be approved or disapproved by a four (4) member committee appointed by the Department Commander and President.
Commander Sarmiento and President Eith encourage all VFW and Auxiliary Districts, Posts, and individual members to contribute to this worthwhile program and prove to the world that "No one does more for veterans than the VFW".
