Membership in the Association is open to veterans and active members of all branches of the U. S. Armed Forces regardless of race, creed, or national origin.

 

The purpose of the Association is to support educational assistance programs, veterans programs, and promotion of community services. The Association works to improve the social conditions of our veterans, local families, youth and the growing population of senior citizens.

 

Throughout the year, the Association is busy with activities that create camaraderie, goodwill, and esprit de corps, both locally and nationally. The activities vary from chapter to chapter and include, but are not limited to youth programs, visits to various organizations and veterans support agencies as well as delivering
food and much needed items to the sick and shut in during times of distress.
