ACWV to attend meeting of Military Order of Foreign Wars of the US

Members of the American Cold War Veterans will be in Washington, DC March 2 to attend
meeting of the Military Order of Foreign Wars of the United States one of the oldest
Veterans Service Organizations.

The meeting being held at the Army & Navy Club with guest speaker Spiro Manolas, author
of "American Arms, Greek Blood," the Greek guerrilla war of 1946-1950.

One of America's heroes General Van Fleet was one of the moving forces and directed the
Greek government.

During our stay we plan to become members of the Army-Navy Union. We also plan to attempt to gain new members to the ACWCV, linking our organization with the two oldest VSO's. This will garner more support for our Cold War Service Medal.

We will also have a brief meeting with Mr. Jeff Burdette staff member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee. Our talk will entail equal treatment at the VA for All Veterans.
