It was an honor to be elected as National Commander of Sons of AMVETS 2016-2017. I look forward with great anticipation of working with my fellow officers and comrades nationwide to further the Aims and Purpose of our organization. We will continue our commitment to the AMVETS family, our communities, and country.
It is with deep sorrow to inform the membership of the death of Past National Commander Stanley Mellott. On behalf of my fellow officers and comrades nationwide our most heartfelt condolences go out to wife Charlene, son Jesse, brothers, Richard Mellott, Ray Slavin, and the entire Mellott family.
More than 2 feet of rain has led to record flooding in Louisiana, submerging homes, businesses, and vehicles underwater.

The words in the famous Kohima Epitaph state very succinctly what it is that each veteran gave to his/her fellow citizens. "When you go home, Tell them of us and say, For their tomorrow, We gave our today"
IMPORTANT UPDATE: PNC BRIGGS ARTS & CRAFT KIT PROJECT
In keeping with our mission of “Sons Serving Veterans” we are now ready to fully implement the next phase of my Arts and Crafts Kits Project. Effective immediately Squadrons may request kits to distribute to hospitalized Veterans or hold Arts and Craft Kit events at your respective Posts. The following URL https://www.hhv.org/resources/facility-application-for-hhv-craft-kits/ will direct you to the Help Hospitalized Veterans – USA (HHV) website.
Simply complete and submit the online form. Upon review you will be contacted by an HHV representative to confirm the request and schedule shipment.
Each kit contains “Thank You” postcards. Please ensure these are completed and mailed. The distribution and assistance provided to the Veterans is also a valid project report. Submit your activity so your Squadron receives credit for being participatory in this effort.
Feel free to contact me directly at 419-563-4759 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need assistance.
Thank you in advance for your support as we continue to fulfill our mission.
