New Blog Features and AMVETS on Facebook

Every day, AMVETS looks for new and innovative ways to spread its message throughout the veterans' community. As you can see, we've added a couple of new features to the blog. On the right, you can now subscribe to our news feed, alerting you each time American Veteran Online is updated. We also added a video bar, with links to AMVETS' YouTube videos embedded into the blog.

This week, AMVETS also launched an official Facebook group, thanks to the help of Mike Little, a Navy veteran and life member of AMVETS who is currently serving in Iraq.

Immediately following the spring NEC, where AMVETS leaders called for a more aggressive use of online social media, AMVETS communications staff reached out to Little to help build a comprehensive information-sharing resource for AMVETS on the social networking site, based off of the group Little created in 2007.

To join the AMVETS Facebook group, all you need to do is log on to Facebook and search "AMVETS." The official group will be the first to pop up. If you do not have an account, it only takes a few minutes to create one.

We hope to hear from you on the blog and see you on Facebook soon.

  1. Let's say,: every Politician on Capital hill, pay for there own medical, and stop using Military facility's for there own personal use, and they can also, pay for there own air flight's also, It's not that they made this Country free it was Us, then and now making it free to live in the country. There value's on Capital hill are backward's most of them who pose to have Us pay for our benefit's are those who, never wore the Uniform. An too know the value of Freedom. They think just because they were born here that gives them the right, an in my opinion they have none. Only what we, allow them to have. We, have the right too impeach these people and to vote them out of office, An by knowing this there days are numbered and I am counting the days, til the next election. for God and Country
