My fellow Sons, AMVETS family members, and friends,

It is with deep sadness to inform every one of the passing of Nancy Kemp, wife of AMVETS PNC Ed Kemp, mother-in-law of AMVETS National Riders President George Cummings, and grandmother of National Juniors President Courtney Cummings.

Greetings to my Fellow Sons, AMVETS family members, and friends,

On this 4th of July, as we enjoy our picnics and parades, I wanted to share portions of a message that was sent to service men and women in 2002 by then Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld.

It is with deep sorrow to inform every one of the recent passing of National Snappiest Sue Dick.

On behalf of the Sons of AMVETS nationwide, I would like to extend our most sincere condolences to Sue’s family and friends. Sue was an outstanding AMVETS family member and will be missed.

AMVETS is hosting a Heal American Veterans Town Hall meeting to hear from service members, veterans and family members on the topic of access to appropriate healthcare options. We need to hear from you.

My fellow Sons, AMVETS family members, and friends,

My fellow Sons,


This year, we wanted to make an effort to get you out information ahead of the final mailing for the Constitution & By-Laws Amendments for you to review earlier than normal and by having these available on the website.

Fellow Sons. AMVETS family members, and friends, 

May is Military Appreciation Month. Sons of AMVETS nationwide extend our most heartfelt thanks and join a grateful nation in appreciation to all military men and women, past and present, for their service and sacrifice.
