My fellow Sons, Today, Wednesday, April 15, AMVETS National Headquarters issued a memorandum to their Departments regarding Department Conventions.

Fellow Sons, “Stay at Home” directives combined with Post closings has impacted and isolated many Veterans and AMVETS family members. Limited social contact can lead to loneliness, low self-esteem, and fear of the unknown. Experts agree that social interaction is vital to maintain physical and mental health.

Fellow Sons, AMVETS family members, and friends,

My fellow Sons,

I am sure by now you are all as sick as I am over the Coronavirus and the phrase “out of an abundance of caution”.  That being said, many states have shut down all food service and drinking establishments and with them most of the Posts.

The Sons of AMVETS Squadron 1-ME, an integral part of the AMVETS family of Post 1 in Biddeford, is organizing a golf tournament and is seeking hole sponsorships at a cost of $50.00 per hole. All sponsors will have a sign set up at a hole or holes for all to see.

The “Pine Tree” State, AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary 1 & Sons of AMVETS Squadron 1 will be hosting a TESTIMONIAL DINNER to proudly honor the Sons of AMVETS National Commander of 2019-2020, Richard H. Thibodeau.

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.
