Serving Wounded Warriors, Active, Reserve, and National Guard Servicemembers, Veterans and their Families living and working in the Northern Shenandoah Valley, American Veterans (AMVETS) Post 18 is the only local Veterans Service Organization (VSO) that welcomes all U.S. Servicemembers whether serving currently or honorably discharged, to include the National Guard and the Reserves.
AMVETS Post 18 also welcomes all Family Members interested in supporting their Servicemember or Veteran as well as others through community and outreach programs.
AMVETS Post 18 is steadily growing in membership and continues to look for new members to assist us with expanding our community and outreach programs.
Outreach programs include donating seed money to the Lord Fairfax Community College Veterans Textbook Loan Program; teaming with the Virginia Employment Commission and other local businesses to offer local job fairs for transitioning Servicemembers, Veterans and the general public; sponsoring Scouts for summer camp; supporting fundraising events for the Boulder Crest Retreat; donating items and labor to the Henry and William Evans Home for Children; participating in local Memorial Day and Veterans Day remembrance and celebration events; collecting and donating toys for the annual Marine Corps League’s Toys for Tots campaign; and participating in and sponsoring other Military and Veterans outreach programs in our service area.
AMVETS Post 18 Business Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm in the Post Home, 851 Green Street, Stephens City, VA.
