Subscribe to National & State Notifications

The primary means of receiving mission & state information is by you subscribing to statewide emails and/or manually visiting the National & State PGR websites. If you wish to subscribe, please complete one or (preferably) both sections below - 1. National & 2. State Notifications

1. National:
To stay informed of events in Wisconsin, we suggest you log-in to the National web site and subscribe (opt-in) to either one or both of our forums, Missions & General State Info. You need to subscribe to the state forums of the states you would like to receive notifications for. There is no limit to the number of states you can subscribe to, and you can change those subscriptions at any time yourself.

  • Missions: Funeral & Memorial services, Veterans Welcome Homes, Send-offs and some types of Help on the Homefront (HOTH) missions.

  • General State Info: General info, Meet and Greets, Fundraisers, Veteran's Home visits, some types of Help on the Homefront (HOTH) events, some events run by non-PGR entities in support of active military, families or veterans.

NOTE: Be sure to subscribe to the top level state forums so you see "all" notifications. If you go into a forum and subscribe to a specific topic, you will only receive notifications when someone posts to that specific topic.

2. State:
In addition to the above, in the hopes of improving communications and getting mission notifications out in a more timely and reliable manner, our State PGR Captain (SC) has set up a email notification system through "Constant Contact (an independent e-Mail processing service). This service will forward mission info from our SC, which may or may not be posted (yet) on the National website. All members are encouraged to sign up (Opt-In) to receive these emails. If you are interested, please do so at this link.
