AMVETS National Headquarters, September 2, 2021 – American Veterans, or AMVETS, is proud to announce our newly-elected National Commander Greg Heun, Kentucky resident and Navy veteran. He was elected by delegates from across the nation at AMVETS’ 76th national convention, which took place in August 2021 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Commander Heun’s journey with AMVETS started in 2002, where he was widely accepted by fellow AMVETS in his community, as well as at the national level. He has risen through the national ranks over the years, serving as a Post Commander, Department Commander, 3rd, 2nd, and 1st National Vice Commander en route to leading our nation’s most inclusive Congressionally-chartered veterans service organization.
“What an honor it has been to serve you over the years. I cannot wait to continue to do so at our organization’s highest position,” Commander Heun during his Installation Ceremony. “This is the greatest [veteran service organization] in the world. No doubt about it.”
Commander Heun served in the United States Navy from 1984 – 1991 as an Aviation Structural Mechanic Second Class, serving aboard multiple aircraft carriers and airfields. He has also received notable accommodations from multiple naval captains.
“I’ve known and worked with Commander Heun for several years now, as we’ve collaborated to help raise AMVETS to the national prominence it currently sits at,” said outgoing National Commander Jan Brown. “I can’t put into words my excitement for him. Greg is a formidable veteran and friend. This organization will continue to flourish under his leadership.”
AMVETS, which is also known as American Veterans, is the most inclusive Congressionally-chartered veterans service organization open to representing the interests of 20 million veterans and their families. We are veterans serving veterans since 1944. amvets.org
