This Week at American Veteran

This week at American Veteran, we will continue to follow developments at National rolling up to this summer's symposium for young veterans.

Congress is in recess for the next two weeks, but the legislative department remains hard at work preparing for a vigorous spring session.

American Veteran Online will keep you up to date on AMVETS' proposal to fund last summer's provision from the Higher Ed bill, which will commission veterans' "centers of excellence" on college campuses nationwide. Last week, Congress approved a base budget for FY2010, leaving AMVETS some room to include this $10 million provision with the support of Texas Congressman Ruben Hinojosa.

We continue to look for content to kick off our "Keeping Posted Online" series, and we will continue to update the "Women in Service" series, highlighting Lillian Kinkella Keil, the most-decorated female service member of WWII.

We are also in the final stages of layout for the next print issue of American Veteran Magazine. Be on the lookout in your mailboxes and online over the next couple of weeks.
