Scholarship Opportunities for Military Veterans

Ankin Law Office is offering two new scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year for United States Armed Forces military veterans.  One of these is for any military veteran or immediate family member and the other is for a disabled veteran.  These scholarships differ from most others as the veteran can choose between trade/vocational schools, 2 year or 4 year universities.  This is the inaugural year for both of these but you can see the list of previous winners of other scholarships at  We would like you to post the links to these scholarships on the state VFW website so the veterans in Virginia will have the opportunity to apply.


These are the links to the military scholarship pages on our website:


Name of Scholarship URL Amount Application Due Date

VFW 2016 Federal Elections Survey

There are 2.2 million service members and 21 million veterans. Including spouses, surviving parents and voting age children, the estimated military/veteran voting bloc exceeds 100 million.
However, America’s military/veteran population is politically and ideologically even, according to a CNN/Gallup/USA Today poll taken in 2004, which was the last time two veterans ran for president.

With another federal election year upon us, the VFW believes it is important to survey our members to better understand how our community thinks.

The 16-question survey will run through Sept. 12, 2016. Click here to take the survey, and be sure to share it with other comrades.
