As some of you have heard, the state budget will experience a 4% cut in veterans services for this year, 6% in the following year, and one or more million dollars in subsequent years. The Georgia Department of Veterans of Foreign Wars intends to be at the signing ceremony en masse, wearing our VFW regulation caps, as a show of force.
Commander Carroll has asked that VFW members rally at 10:00 at the Floyd Veterans Memorial Building that day. The building is at 200 Piedmont Ave SE, Atlanta - directly across from the Capitol building. VFW members will assemble on the balcony level.
