An Example of How It Works
In 1942, Lloyd Kahle was working as a naval inspector in Washington, D.C., when he decided to join the Air Force. To his dismay, enlistment was closed, and he was drafted to the Army. Now Lloyd, a lifetime VFW member, is standing up in support of our veterans. He has included the VFW in his will by simply sharing bequest language with his estate planning attorney, and he hopes to inspire other veterans to do the same. His special gift to the VFW will benefit his local Post and the many programs funded by the VFW National Headquarters.
"This gracious man and brave defender is an important piece of our nation's history," said John E. Hamilton, former VFW Adjutant General. "Now he will be an integral part of the future, both for today's veterans and tomorrow's troops. His legacy will always live on."
