The Order of the Cooties is a VFW organization designed to visit veterans in hospital, cheer them up and occupy their minds. The VFW organization helps veterans settle back into every-day life as best they can, Allyn said, and it also does a lot of work with injured and returning veterans, making sure they get all the help they need. Allyn has been a member of the Sweet Home VFW since 1985, he said. "1 just get a pleasure out of doing things for other people." He also belongs to the other organizations at the Vet's Club. "We have applications for all of the organizations here," Allyn said. "Talk to anybody, and we'll help decide which organization would be best."
