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.
