Closer than a Brother,

Becoming a Cootie is a distinction reserved for active members and officers of the VFW, and
those who have demonstrated leadership.  

Some of our programs and those we support include:
  • VFW National Home for Children
  • Hospitalized Veterans Worldwide
  • VFW Membership Recruitment
  • Christie Braun Scholarship Fund
  • VFW Fundraising

The prime directive of the MOC is to have fun.  It is the Preamble of our Supreme By-Laws.
Our hat, our uniform, even our name is designed to bring a smile.  As our hero The Great
Blue Louse instructs us, "A smile is the one thing that you can give that you will always get
back!" We strive to bring humor to our efforts, to our fellow Veterans and those less
fortunate than us.

Our distinctive red hat is the badge of honor to those committed to the values of the VFW
and the extra effort of being a Comrade "Closer than a Brother, Busier than a Bee".
