Unlike the other organizations, membership in AMVETS is open to anyone who is currently serving, or has honorably served, in the U.S. Armed Forces from World War II to present, to include those in the National Guard and Reserves..
AMVETS is one of the nation’s foremost veterans service organizations (VSOs). It stands as a strong and influential advocate for America’s veterans on important issues such as employment and training, mandatory funding for government-provided health care and other benefits to which they are entitled. AMVETS is a 501 ( c ) 19 organization.
AMVETS is dedicated to supporting veterans and active military, providing community services and preserving freedom.
AMVETS national service officers, accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), provide free claims assistance to veterans, their dependents and survivors. AMVETS members also donate countless hours to brighten the lives of hospitalized veterans and promote quality-of-life programs such as Special olympics or scouting.
Of particular interest are issues related to veteran’s health care and other entitlements, POW/MIA accountability, national defense and flag protection.
AMVETS MISSION STATEMENT: To enhance and safeguard the entitlements for all American Veterans who have served honorably and to improve the quality of life for them, their families, and the communities where they live through leadership, advocacy and services.
