I fell that the wives of VFW members need to have a seperate organization for several reasons. I feel that weomen are different than men and have a complely diffent take on the organization. The have the same committment we do but go about it differently. They look at things in a different light and have different ideas. None of these things are bad. The best thing about it is that it IS DIFFERENT from the way we do things. They bring different skills, ideas, and other things to the organization that men just would not do on their own. Also weomen that gather without interference from the men have a more organized, and efficient way of doing things. Not trying to say that they have the perfect model for an organization, but we could learn a thing or two from them. The best thing that we can do is keep them close, give them support, and let them do what they do best. Don't interfere with what is going on now. If it's not broke, don't try to fix it.
