TESTIMONIAL DINNER

DINNER INFORMATION

When: Saturday, July 23rd 5:00p Cocktails 6:00p Dinner 8:00p Entertainment

Fellow Sons, AMVETS family members, and friends,

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. Today is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends. It is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings.

Remember, “Christmas magic is silent. You don’t hear it-you feel it. You know it. You believe it.”

Fellow Sons, AMVETS Family, and Friends,

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.

My fellow Sons, AMVETS Family members and friends,

As we spend time this Memorial Day with our family and friends, please take a moment to pause, reflect and honor the men and women who died fighting for liberty.

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.

Commander Mick's Project - Gary Sinise Foundation

         

Fellow Sons, AMVETS Family, and Friends,

During our 40th Anniversary year I have selected the Gary Sinise Foundation (GSF) as my project. The Gary Sinise Foundation serves our nation by honoring our defenders, our veterans, our first responders, our country’s heroes, and their families, and those in need.

They accomplish their mission by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities. Their R.I.S.E. program (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment), builds specially adapted smart homes for our most severely wounded heroes. They also provide home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to our injured, wounded, ill, and/or aging heroes.

Another GSF program is Soaring Valor. You may find it interesting that fewer than 500,00 World War II Veterans are still with us. Through Soaring Valor, World War II veterans and their guardians are brought to New Orleans to tour The National WWII Museum built in their honor. Their experience includes entertainment, celebratory meals, and community building with their fellow heroes. Students who accompany our veterans continue their stories with a new appreciation for the sacrifices made by an entire generation, the Greatest Generation. As a Son of a World War II Marine, it is imperative that we make every attempt to honor those Veterans.

The GSF Snowball Express, serves the children and surviving spouse of fallen military heroes. GSF is committed to programming and support that holds space to honor their fallen heroes while also helping create new memories as they move forward. Since 2018, 11639 children of fallen military heroes & their surviving parent/guardian joined us for Snowball Express.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

Sincerely,

Michael ‘Mick’ Ciesla - Commander
