State Commander Greg Smith


Greg Smith

I am grateful and humbled by the continued support of the members of the VFW Department of Connecticut. Thank you for your trust in electing me to serve as your State Commander. I pledge to do all am able to live up to the faith you have placed in me. Congratulations to newly elected State Auxiliary President Carol Preston and her entire slate of officers. I am looking forward to all we can accomplish for Veterans and their families in the coming VFW year.

My Commander's special project is VFW National Military Services, with an emphasis on the Military (Unit) Assistance Program, also known as MAP. VFW MAP is the outstretched hand between the VFW and our military units stationed here in Connecticut. With many troops returning home from war, I know that I can count on all 117 of our Connecticut VFW Posts and our tens of thousands of individual members state-wide, to join me in redoubling our outreach and fundraising efforts to support these Veterans and their families.

I look forward to working with all of you to grow our VFW and to maintain the prestige of our great organization, which has been earned by the millions of members who have worked tirelessly for Veterans since 1899.

Respectfully,
Gregory Smith
VFW State Commander
