SUBMIT ITEMS FOR PUBLICATION TO THE WEB MASTER

When you type an article for submission, it would be helpful if you would use the following HTML code:
At the end of each line or sentence, use this sign < BR>(except DO NOT leave any spaces between the characters)this will be the code to start a new line, the equivalent of slapping the old carrage return on a typewriter. For a new paragraph do this twice for two spaces between lines.

Official Statment Of the MILITARY ASSOCIATION OF ATHEISTS AND FREETHINKERS
The Veterans of Foreign Wars recently published a new, nonsectarian membership application that included none of the religious requirements of their previous application.
We applaud this action and consider their stated membership requirements to be comprehensive and fair:
US citizenship, an honorable discharge, and an overseas campaign medal (or 30 days' service in Korea).
We encourage all veterans to join the VFW, both to continue the long service of the VFW to soldiers and in recognition of the VFW's newfound respect for nonreligious soldiers.
We consider it the responsibility of the membership to generate new, progressive change in the policies of the VFW.
We encourage the VFW to continue to represent all soldiers by avoiding religious issues and focusing on military policies.
We encourage the VFW to publicly recognize their new membership policy by official resolution.
The VFW should rescind it's support of the current Pledge, a document that creates religious division in America, and lobby the supreme court for the original Pledge, the true statement of patriotism in America.
