I'm Joining...

... I've been getting solicitations in the mail for a while now.. they're asking me to join the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and I've always just tossed them... I don't know why, but when I imagine a VFW member, I see Audie Murphy or some crusty WWII guy... grizzled with age and battle... or even someone of my Father's age - a Vietnam Vet.... but after today, I might have to break down and join... see, this very morning, I had my cherry popped, so to speak... that's right, I now have a MRI and a Bone Scan under my belt... twas quite an experience.. injected with various dyes and radioactive juices.. slid into a tube, and zapped by my old buddy Stu...

I don't know why, but somehow feel that a milestone of sorts has been reached... the next time I get that VFW paperwork, I'm filling the bitch out... I can hang with those old warhorses...

Welcome to the Post!

Here's your barstool. Beer's are 75 cents. Bring your own Scotch 'cause all we have is Jack.


The VFW needs new blood (no knife fighting demos though)...

We joined because my husband's grandpa kept on and on about it...we've had some good times too. The VFW definitely needs some younger members...

I always had good times when I was at the VFW...those crusties could use a good story or two from your side as well!
Off the topic - hope all is ok with the scan.

Being from Missouri, I lived and worked in LA Califucku in the 70's and the VFW there was ruled by the most wild raunchy and wonderful guys that were VN Vets. The oldtimers loved us and showed us how to REALLY show our asses! Great bunch of people!
They never would let me join because my duty there wasnt on my record. Security and all, I know a lot of guys that were not OFFICIALLY in country because of our job.
What the hell, the real vets know the real vets. Its a great brotherhood, even if you are a black sheep that was in the woodpile.
The oldtimers, I LOVE THEM! Share a beer with them, they'll melt your heart and make you humble...

I am begging my husband to join, hoping I can find a group of old guys willing to let a "broad" play poker with them. Maybe if I wear an Angie Dickenson silk screen t-shirt.
