WHY WE JOINED:
"I joined AMVETS because of my strong desire to help others. What makes this organization so great is that
"I love knowing that my efforts help others, and I love knowing that if I ever needed it, I could ask for help from anyone would be right by my side to help me."
IT GIVES ME THE CHANCE TO CONTINUE TO SERVE, EVEN AFTER MY CONTRACT EXPIRED.
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?'"
