LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FOR DECEMBER 01, 2021 IS POSTED FOR YOUR REVIEW!!!!!!

Sons of AMVETS, Family and Friends,

As we came together yesterday to mark the remembrance of the terrorist actions that occurred on our soil 20 years ago, we remembered the 2,977 lives lost and the more than 6,000 others that were injured. Everyone remembers where they were on that fateful day, the same as the generations that came before us remembered Pearl Harbor.

Fellow Sons,

Official implementation of online membership has started.

To all Sons of AMVETS nationwide: Although we were unable to "Storm the Hill" in 2021, we need to stay active and remind our legislators that common sense benefits for Veterans must remain a major focus.

The Sons of AMVETS 36th National Convention in Greensboro, North Carolina was a tremendous success.  Congratulations to Commander-Elect Paul R. Speigle from Squadron 45 in Salem, Ohio. The entire leadership team for 2021 – 2022 is listed below.

The 36th National Sons of AMVETS Convention in Greensboro, North Carolina, considering the circumstances, was a unique experience with everyone stepping up to the plate to make it a success. It is a great honor to be elected Sons of AMVETS National Commander and to be humbled with the support of my fellow Sons and AMVETS family.

With the Veteran’s suicide crisis at hand, I have chosen Warrior Battalion, a 501c3 charity, as my project. Their mission is to fight the battle against post-traumatic stress and support U.S. military service members and their families through healing programs to end Veteran suicide. Warrior Battalion has developed a national resource map where Veterans, their families and supporters can connect and help one another. Nationwide peer mentors are being trained and certified in suicide prevention with the focus on a network to be there in time to prevent Veteran suicide. Future retreat homes for military families for getaways are being developed to provide a serene location to offer outdoor activities targeted to reducing stress and building family bonds. For more information, please visit www.warriorbattalion.org. It is my hope that all of you will support this great project. One Veteran suicide is too many.

Paul R. Speigle – Commander
