objectives of the Veterans of Foreign Wars are
Fraternal, Patriotic, Historical and Educational;
To preserve and strengthen comradeship among its members;
To assist worthy comrades;
To perpetuate the memory and history of our dead,
And to assist their widows and orphans;
To maintain true allegiance to the Government
of the United States of America,
And fidelity to its Constitution and laws;
To foster true patriotism;
To maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom;
And to preserve and defend the United States from all her enemies,

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
