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

 

As Richard Thibodeau winds down his 2nd year as Sons of AMVETS National Commander, he would like to extend his most heartfelt THANKS for everyone's support for his project to aid Help Heal Veterans. 

My Fellow Sons, 

At this time of year, as our States are beginning the slow process of mass vaccination and reopening of our economies and thus allowing meetings to happen, I thought I might get out ahead of one question I know I will be getting somewhat frequently over the next 3 months.

Greetings fellow Sons, AMVETS family members and friends,

On behalf of Commander Thibodeau, I would like to THANK everyone who participated in our National Winter Raffle supporting the Commander’s Project – Help Heal Veterans. Your active efforts are greatly appreciated.

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.
