Veterans post established in Hayward
Post Commander Michael L. Emerson announced the establishment of California's newest AMVETS (American Veterans) Post. Located in downtown Hayward, California, AMVETS Hayward Post 911 had its first meeting to establish a charter and leadership group on July 27, 2013.
AMVETS was officially recognized by the U.S. Congress on July 23, 1947 as a veteran's service organization, but this will be the first time an AMVETS Post will be located in Hayward. AMVETS is the only national veteran's organization that accepts all honorably discharged veterans from any branch of service, as well as American veterans of allied military services.
"To be an all-inclusive organization means a lot to me and our 19 charter members." The Post organization's "Grand Opening" welcome event is scheduled for Thursday, September 5 at the Hayward Veterans Memorial Building.
We are inviting everyone in the community to attend our event to help us celebrate the Grand Opening. All veterans, active/reserve duty military, veteran supporters, and interested citizens are encouraged to attend to learn more about AMVETS mission. The AMVETS service foundation provides assistance to veterans with college transition, disability claims filing, legal assistance, homelessness, and much more...
AMVETS motto: "Committed To Serve...Those Who Served."
