Recruiting new members for VFW not an easy task

Email News Alerts

Wadena VFW Post 3922 Commander Jimmy White calls it "a tough row to hoe."

The Wadena post has 381 members but the job of recruiting them is becoming increasingly difficult.


White is up against a foe that might be unbeatable. He is trying to recruit members from the young ranks of soldiers that have served in Iraq and Afghanistan - the men and women who are veterans of foreign wars.

White has been recruiting new members for the Wadena club since 2004.
