I am a life member (#XXXXXXX) though admittedly I have not been an active member of the VFW. I was scandalized and embarrassed recently when I discovered that the VFW has endorsed Congressman Gerry Connolly (Virginia 11th District). While it is true that Connolly has done some military and veteran friendly acts, he is one of the many committed socialists who are busy destroying the country. I can’t even get my arms around the concept of a patriotic organization like the VFW endorsing a lying weasel like Connolly for any office much less Congressman. Did you guys actually talk to his opponent Keith Fimian? I understand the single focus of the VFW, however someone up there must have the vision to see what committed leftists like Connolly are doing to the country. What possible difference can it make that Connolly threw us a couple bones while he was busy torching the country we love?
