    Thanks for the support.


    Now, please allow me to explain this more in-depth for you...

    1) Veterans Health Care, and other benefits, have been lacking for years. They identified online gaming as a potential revenue stream in a charitable gaming model.

    2) The communications and marketing arm of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (Called the VFW Web Com) and the APCW have partnered to try to capture the now abandoned US Gaming Market's revenue for Veterans Services. Our job is to educate the members, answer questions, help in the legislative process, grow our membership, and help choose how the whole system is set up from software to affiliate program.

    3) The VFW has over 2.4 million members who need additional funds for services that the US Federal Government does not pay. In fact, their funding will be cut even more within the next 2 years. The VFW Webcom network connects all the Vet's together with emails, message boards, blogs, and over 8,000 websites to discuss the strategy.

    4) There has been little negative feedback privately when online charitable gaming has been discussed. Once the "higher ups" approve the model, we write legislation.

    5) Now the fun begins, because once the VFW goes forward with this the American Legion will follow, as well as other Veterans Service Organizations like the Disabled Vets, Vietnam Veterans, and Purple Heart Association. That would bring the numbers to around 6,000,000 represented Americans.

    6) With that kind of representation all over the country, no congressman will dare to not take our calls or welcome us to their office. We give them a choice to fully fund the Veterans Services or approve our online charity gaming model... If they don't want to help, then the thousands of Veterans in their districts will not be happy.

    I hope this explains the strategy, and shows that this process will take long hours and hard work... but it's totally winnable.


    Please help grow our political power.

    This seems to be the most pro-active way to get regulation into the industry in the US and should certainly give the APCW enough political muscle to ensure it is heard and taken seriously.

    Any form of regulation is still a way off but this is by far the most constructive and well balanced effort I've seen.

    Well done J. Todd. Give it a few years and you could run for President!!

    Oh no. Sorry I forgot, you have a some common sense and a thought process so that excludes you!

    I agree with you, Doolally. Indeed, J. Todd is assuredly disqualified since he does not share a brain with a man called Cheney.

    Almost Here! How would you like to be able to get not just one sign up from your player, or even a couple, but every single casino they join from here on? I've a plan that can make that happen and it will likely also tell you every time the player is active within the casino.

    • Does this deal with Offshore casinos, or just the US land based casinos going internet??
