AMVETS, which is also known as American Veterans, is the largest and oldest veterans service organization that is open to and fights for all veterans and their families.
This is the new look of AMVETS, modern in appearance and still supporting the same values that we have exhibited since our beginning.
Founded in 1944 by and chartered by an act of Congress, the organization has more than 250,000 members. AMVETS exists to enhance the quality of life for all veterans, their families and survivors. Membership in AMVETS is open to anyone who honorably served or is currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves.
AMVETS has made a long-term economic impact by providing assistance, jobs, and services to veterans and their communities for over 70 years.
We are also known for our annual Silver Helmet Awards to “recognize excellence and achievement in Americanism, defense, rehabilitation, congressional service and other fields. Sometimes called the “Veterans Oscar,” the award is shaped like a silver WWII helmet. Many famous Americans have been recipients of the award through the years.
