LaTanglia Dozier, event co-chair, said the VFW is important for several reasons.

“The VFW is Selma’s best-kept secret,” Dozier said. “The VFW provides support and resources for veterans, including assistance with obtaining benefits, access to health care, and help with transitioning back to civilian life. They also offer financial assistance for veterans in need. The VFW advocates for veterans’ rights and interests at the local, state, and national levels. They work to ensure that veterans receive the benefits and support they deserve. Overall, the VFW plays a crucial role in supporting and advocating for veterans, preserving their legacy, and promoting patriotism and respect for those who have served our country.”

If anyone wants to participate as a vendor, contact Dozier at 334-412-8168. Transportation will also be provided.
