The brainchild of FreeRepublic.com poster "dcwusmc", VCR was started by posting an announcement on FreeRepublic during the afternoon of December 11, 2001, asking veterans if they would be interested in joining the proposed organization. Within hours of the initial post, over 100 replies had been generated, and volunteers to serve as the first Board of Directors had been identified and a veteran in Nevada had agreed to serve the organization as the Resident Agent in that state.
The first meeting of the new Board of Directors was held online in IRC chat on December 16, 2001 in the virtual Board Room established on Freedom-USA IRC network. The channel on Freedom-USA's network is #vcr.
The goals of the organization are simple: an ongoing educational outreach program that will explain to and teach the people about our republican form of government, how government has over-reached and extended itself beyond its mandated limits, and what needs to be done to push government, particularly the federal government, back inside its constitutional box, and to limit it to ONLY those powers and duties specifically granted to it by the Constitution. We are asking veterans to join us in this endeavor, because of the OATH that we all took, to PROTECT and DEFEND the Constitution from ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. The task before us is daunting, but American Veterans have faced daunting tasks before, and I'm hopeful that you will step up again before we lose the Republic and all that it has stood for these past 200+ years, FREEDOM and LIBERTY.
Toward this end, several projects are in the works, with the goal of ending 80+ years of creaping socialism and restoring the Constitutional Republic envisioned by the Founding Fathers.
Join us in our efforts to educate the American populace with an understanding and appreciation of this truly unique and wonderful country we enjoy.
If you don't have the background to qualify for VetsCoR (according to by-laws), the VetsCor Auxiliary should be in place within a couple weeks. We welcome those who would now serve alongside our veterans and current military. If you are interested in the Auxiliary, please forward your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you on our Auxiliary interest list.

Disabled American Vets has been a God-send over the years, and he has received extraordinary care in most instances at the VA. I just want to remind everyone that if you are a vet you can go to the VA Clinic for medical care too. When health care became pathetically inefficient for mainstream Americans in California, my husband returned to the VA system for his medical care. He can't be more pleased with the treatment he has received in the past year.
Giant sized BUMP for the DAV, VA and all our VETS!
Ask dio to call me after 17:00 Pacific. Thanks.
