CAMO-COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES & MOBILIZATION OBJECTIVE

 

Welcome to the Department of Wisconsin’s CAMO page!!   What is CAMO? CAMO is Community Activities and Mobilization Objective, a Department initiative to encourage post engagement within our communities via increased participation in events and activities.  We want the VFW posts across Wisconsin to return to our roots as a central part of our communities, to be an active and regular presence in our hometowns, and to provide an example of civic engagement for other citizens and youth to strive for. 

 

 NATIONAL DAY OF SERVICE MAY 7, 2022

The VFW is sponsoring a National Day of Service where VFW Posts and Members take the lead in community service projects in their communities.  This concept is at the core of Wisconsin’s CAMO program.  Please go to the National Website to learn more about the program and how to register your post’s events.  For more information contact the state CAMO Chair or consul the following link:
