The cutest thing in the world happened today: my husband applied to join the VFW.

I teased my brother (good naturedly) to no end when he received his VFW card after GWI.

I think that's really cool. It will be great to infuse new blood into the VFW's in the country. I've always wondered though, what's the difference between the VFW and the American Legion? Any clues?

To be eligible for membership in the American Legion, one simply has to serve on active duty during wartime. VFW membership requires serving in a war zone outside the US. More complete membership criteria are listed at the websites for each organization.

I recall my brother joined the one in Lompoc (Santa Maria or whatever) because they had the best bar in town. :)
