WHY WE JOINED:
Lawrence Anthony Newton, Post 24, Ohio AMVETs State Service Officer:
"In my 40 years of volunteer activities never have I received such a warm and enthusiastic welcome as when I go into nursing homes or hospitals or people’s homes as a State Service Officer. The welcome is not necessarily for me as an individual as it is for the Organization that I represent.
"AMVETs has a long history of helping veterans without asking the question, 'Are you a member?'"
