Amvets - Edinburg AMVETS Mission Statement: To enhance and safeguard the entitlements for all American Veterans who have served honorably and to improve the quality of life

As one of America’s leading veterans service organizations with over 250,000 members, AMVETS (or American Veterans) has a proud history of assisting veterans and sponsoring numerous programs that serve our country and its citizens. Membership in AMVETS is open to anyone who is currently serving, or who has honorably served, in the U.S. Armed Forces from World War II to the present, to include the National Guard and Reserves. The helping hand that AMVETS extends to veterans and their families takes many forms: Veteran Services One of the most visible is our network of trained national service officers (NSOs) accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Funded by the AMVETS National Service Foundation, these dedicated men and women can be found in close to 50 states, providing sound advice and prompt action on compensation claims at no charge to the veteran. In one recent year alone, AMVETS national service officers processed more than 74,000 claims, Our Programs – AMVETS in Action In addition to the work of our national service officers, other AMVETS members, as well as those in the AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary, will devote as many as 1 million hours of free time a year to brighten the lives of hospitalized veterans. Here, something as simple as playing cards with the lonely or watching television with the disabled can make a world of difference. So can the assistance we give those who want to finish their education. Each year AMVETS awards scholarships totaling $40,000 to deserving high school seniors, ROTC students and veterans pursuing higher education. But helping others is not limited to our fellow veterans. AMVETS members in more than 1,400 posts nationwide also promote and support “quality of life” community-service programs ranging from Special Olympics and ROTC to scouting and organ-donor projects. Your Voice in DC Over the years, AMVETS has been at the forefront of public policy related to national defense, services for homeless veterans, adequate funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs, concurrent receipt of retirement pay and disability compensation by disabled military retirees, veterans employment and training, POW/MIA accountability and flag protection. Apart from these initiatives, the organization has monetarily supported national monuments such as the USS Arizona, the Statue of Liberty and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It also sponsors its own carillon program to honor America’s deceased servicemen and women. Since 1949, when President Truman dedicated the first carillon at Arlington National Cemetery, this program has grown to encompass more than 60 sites in the United States and overseas. Another tribute unique to AMVETS is the Silver Helmet Award, often referred to as the Veterans Oscar. A replica of the World War II GI helmet, this prestigious award is presented annually to recognize excellence and achievement in Americanism, defense, rehabilitation, congressional service and other fields.

Mission: 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.

Outstanding member of AMVETS Department of Texas Post 107 1st Vice Commander Mike Wilson Outstanding Veteran and Representative of AMVETS.
Outstanding AMVETS Veteran, Post 107 Treasurer Mrs. Cris Solis Wilson
AMVETS Post 107 Treasurer Christina Wilson and 1st State Vice Commander, Jesse Bean.
As AMVETS 1st Vice State Commander I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days with the Executive Board of AMVETS Post 107 Saturday and Sunday. You know how you feel when you have a great couple of days back to back and come away with an over the top positive attitude about the progress , about the status, about the people involved and you are so excited and thrilled you can hardly contain yourself. Well, AMVETS and others that is exactly what happened to me when I talked to Commander Cuba and 1st Vice Wilson and topped off with a 4th of July fireworks display called Christina Wilson, DYNAMIC ?? nah , nah that is only the tip of the iceberg. She is blowing the doors off and just part of her 24 hour a day is as Treasurer for AMVETS Post 107. If you are a Veteran with an honorable discharge or an active duty military man or woman,and in the Rio Grande Valley, get in touch with Post 107 and sign up to do great things for Veterans in South Texas, the State of Texas and the Nation as well as our Community here and all over. If you join us you are doing your part to help our Veterans and your involvement past you joining is just major bonus points for the betterment of Veteran issues. Thanks Post 107 , Just Fantastic.
