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

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.

Vietnam Veteran John Hawkins served as Commander of AMVETS Post 274 in Carlisle, PA in 2017-2018. In May 2019, Commander John suffered a stroke. Presently he resides in the Middleton Home in Middleton, PA.

Attention ALL Sons and AMVETS family members,

The Department of Illinois will be hosting an ILLINOIS NIGHT/BLOCK PARTY on Wednesday, August 19th during our 2020 National Convention.

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.
