#OTD: It is with great pride to celebrate this day, on July 23, 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed Public Law 216, making #AMVETS the first #VSO World War II organization to be chartered by Congress.

Since then, the original charter has been amended several times to admit as members those who served in different eras. Today, membership in AMVETS is open to anyone who is currently serving, or who has honorably served, in the U.S. Armed Forces from World War II to the present, to include the National Guard and Reserves. #POTUS #WWII #VETS
