LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FOR June 24th, 2022, IS POSTED FOR YOUR REVIEW!!!!!!

 

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.

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.

I have chosen OPERATION SECOND CHANCE as my project. Their mission: A dedicated group of patriotic citizens committed to serving our wounded, injured and ill combat veterans. We support Veterans and their families by building relationships and identifying and supporting the immediate needs and interests while promoting public awareness of the many sacrifices made by our Armed Forces. Veterans are supported from meals, cookouts and entertainment to morale building retreats and financial assistance for individual wounded soldier’s expenses including utilities, mortgage payments, medical equipment, grocery gift cards, clothing, travel and car repairs. Operation Second Chance began in 2004 with the kindness of Cindy McGrew, CEO and Founder. Cindy came to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center giving her support to seven injured soldiers and their families. Operation Second Chance has now provided over $9 million worth of assistance and support because of the generosity of the Americans these heroes protect.
