Purple Heart Survey access instructions

Comrades:
 
The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. has been asked to comment on an FY 2014 National Defense Authorization Act requirement that tasks the Defense Department to review the Purple Heart’s current eligibility criteria. Specifically, should service members who are injured or killed by acts of violence, regardless of where they are stationed, be eligible for a Purple Heart?
 
In an update, we discovered a lot of VFW members have yet to take the survey because it’s in a “members only” section of our website that they either didn’t know about or know how to access.   We have since added to the VFW homepage a link to the “members only” log-in section. 
 
Click on the Purple Heart link at www.vfw.org to access the “members only” section and the Purple Heart Survey.  Your VFW membership number is required.  Please forward this update to every VFW member and Post so that all have an opportunity to take the survey before it ends March 31.
 
Regards,
 
Joe Davis
Public Affairs Director
