Victory Lodge 1725 recognizes the unique situation and needs of our members that have served in our country’s military. We believe it is our duty to help and be of service to those members in any way we can. There is an abundance of public and private programs and services open to military veterans; the problem is very few veterans know what’s available and where to go. Victory Lodge 1725’s Veterans Committee seeks to bridge the informational gap between our members and the programs and services they fought for.”
