Shared Resources


The following resources are available to all Kansas area VFW and American Legion posts. These resources are updated and maintained by participating posts under the coordination of Brandon M. Trube. By colaboration on unified resources, we eliminate double posting, extra work, misinformation, and missed events.

Customized versions of the scripts and links below are available to integrate in to your existing Post site, or to add on to the calendars that you already use. Just email Brandon M. Trube with your request. I can also admin anyone who needs it to be able to submit their own posts events to these calendars. These events will then show up on multiple post websites! I can send you a script that will show all of these, with your existing Google calendar(s), and the code to replace the current calendar script on your page, if you are interested.

Simple Instructions

In your Post's Google Calendar (or other compatable program), simply 'invite' one of the calendars below to your event, using the Invite Address listed. When you make changes to your event, those changes should be reflected on the calendar below. IMPORTANT NOTE Any events that do not conform to the format or requirements below will be removed.

Veteran's services
