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.

As September rolls in, so does Mark Serpis as National Commander for the Sons of AMVETS.

More than 2 feet of rain has led to record flooding in Louisiana, submerging homes, businesses, and vehicles underwater. AMVETS Post 68 in Springfield, LA is the focal point for residents of Livingston Parish to go for benefits from the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services' Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

The efforts of the membership nationwide was nothing short of SENSATIONAL. Spearheaded by Commander Strittmather we collectively submitted $8,528,384 in Project Reports for 2015-2016.

On June 10 the New York “Run For The Fallen” under the auspices of Karen Wright, NY Director “Honor and Remember” was a huge success.

To all Sons of AMVETS nationwide: Our National Convention in Reno, NV is less than a month away. To those attending, please review the Call to Convention packet for details and tentative schedule.

Today, I would like to extend a Happy 4th of July to each member of the AMVETS family and our friends.

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"
