This is what I sent to them. Feel free to copy and paste. As a 3 time combat veteran of two wars I am personally appalled at the fact that your organization refuses to endorse LTC Allen West in his bid to serve as a congressman from Florida. It is persons like LTC West who have allowed all of us to live free and have the choices that we do in this country. I have recently read of some of the other endorsements that the VFW has given to politicians in this upcoming election and I am absolutely disgusted. Many of the people that the VFW are endorsing have done nothing to actually support veterans. Its true, some may have signed on to a defense bill or been a co-sponsor, but the overall track records of most of these incumbents shows a complete lack of respect for what veterans have done for this country. While it is within your rights as a national organization to endorse who you deem to be the best candidate, I will say that you do not have my vote to do so. In fact you will no longer have my money, membership or my time. I will gladly join another organization that has the best interests of not only veterans but their families at heart. In addition I will be forwarding information on your endorsements to everyone I know, who is either a member of the VFW or a contributor via donations or volunteerism, in the hopes that they will follow my lead and stop being affiliated with the VFW. One would think that in such a pivotal election year as this one, that an organization that represents so many veterans, would have at least asked some of those veterans who they would like to see endorsed.
