AMVETS Post 42 is located inside the Marion Correctional Institution. Post 42 has several programs that are beneficial to incarcerated veterans as well as AMVETS AADA. One of our programs is sewing therapy in which blankets are made out of yard donated from other AMVETS posts in Ohio and are donated to the two Ohio Veterans Homes in Sandusky and Georgetown. The sewing therapy group also makes teddy bears that are donated to local hospitals and police departments for distribution to children in need. We also have a program titled Facing Yourself. In Facing Yourself the men involved take a look inside themselves to deal with the issues that led them to be incarcerated. We have a veteran resource fair annually where outside agencies and veteran groups can come in and share resources.

Post 42 donated funds in August 2020 to Stockhands Horses for Healing a equine therapy farm in Delaware County who serves veterans and children with disabilities. The funds will go towards the purchase of hay to feed the horses. As a thank you, Post 42's flag will now hang in the riding barn.
