AMVETS' core value is to continuously service our veterans, their families, and the communities they live in, whether that be through times of calm or chaos.
With hurricane Ian making its way through the lower United States, we implore all posts and departments to help their neighboring AMVETS and communities in the safest ways possible.
It is during times like these that our organization comes through for the American public, and we display our selfless sense of service and perseverance.
