Serving the Northern Shenandoah Valley, American Veterans (AMVETS) Post 18 is Winchester’s latest Veterans Service Organization. Unlike other VSOs, AMVETS is the only VSO that welcomes anyone who is currently serving, or who honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces, to include the National Guard and the Reserves.
AMVETS Post 18 is steadily growing in membership and continues to look for new members to help us expand our community and veterans outreach programs.
Outreach programs include; donating seed money to the Lord Fairfax Community College Veterans Textbook Loan Program; present medals and certificates to outstanding JROTC cadets in the Northern Virginia area schools; sponsor cub scouts for summer camp; sponsored the April 2018 Top of Virginia Chamber of Commerce After Hours mixer; and participated in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention “Out of Darkness” walk.
Still in search of a permanent home, AMVETS Post 18 meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month beginning at 6:30 PM at the Winchester Moose Lodge, 215 E. Cork St. Winchester, VA.
