VFW Post 4706 honors the sacrifices of American Service members by organizing Buddy Poppy donation drives in the Atlanta-metro community, and continues the tradition of the Buddy Poppy Queen at our events.
Since 1922, the Buddy Poppy has been an integral part of the VFW community.
As VFW's official memorial flower. the poppy represents the bloodshed by American service members. The VFW was the first veterans organization to organize a nationwide poppy drive initiative to help support veterans and veterans' programs.
The VFW Buddy Poppy program provides compensation to the veterans who assemble the poppies, provides financial support assistance in maintaining state and national veterans' rehabilitation and service programs and partially supports the VFW National Home For Children.
