Charles “Tony” Dobbins Department of Georgia Adjutant - 9/3/2020

We are an organization of 1.6M members worldwide. We all have an opinion of who should lead our country at the federal, state, and local levels. I ask that you not make your fellow comrades and auxiliary members uncomfortable by having political discussions at VFW or Auxiliary sponsored events or activities. I do ask you to Exercise Your Right to VOTE and cast YOUR VOTE for the best candidate that will support our veteran’s priorities and protect the benefits that you were promised and earned.

Please be respectful of each other and stay safe during these turbulent times.

Yours in Comradeship,

Charles A. "Tony” Dobbins
National Legislative Committee Member - Georgia
