This week at American Veteran, we will follow AMVETS Legislative Director Ray Kelley to Capitol Hill for Thursday's hearing before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, where AMVETS will discuss seven key pieces of veterans' legislation, such as Colorado Congressman Mike Coffman's National Guard Employment Act of 2009.
We will also introduce an online "Keeping Posted," thanks to the recent influx of content from the field. Thank you to everyone who has submitted your photos. In order to best serve you, we ask that you submit early and often. The best delivery method is via email to either Isaac or Ryan. We're here to help you tell the story of AMVETS' work in communities around the country, and we look forward to seeing more and more submissions down the road.
AMVETS is also continuing to muster support for student-veterans' "centers of excellence" on college campuses nationwide. To send a letter of support to your representatives in Congress, see the latest legislative alert on the AMVETS Capitol Hill Web site.
Planning for the 2009 AMVETS Symposium for 21st Century Veterans rolls on, with more details to come in the next few weeks.
