AMVETS in Action

American Veteran Magazine

American Veteran is a quarterly publication produced by the Communications Department at AMVETS National Headquarters. First published in June 1946, the AMVETS’ magazine has evolved and changed. While offered for $0.25 in 1946, we are able to provide complimentary copies to today’s members and reduced subscription rates to members of the National Ladies Auxiliary, National Sons of AMVETS, and AMVETS Riders. Always featuring issues affecting both active duty members and veterans, American Veteran magazine is committed to provide you with a voice.
