Summer Issue of American Veteran Now Available

This morning, the latest edition of American Veteran magazine went to print. The summer issue is already available online, and paper copies should reach your mailboxes in the coming days.

This month's issue features a special interview with retired Marine Lt. Col. Tim Maxwell, the wounded warrior behind the Marine Corps' groundbreaking Wounded Warrior Regiment.

We also highlighted John Schupp's Supportive Education for the Returning Veteran (SERV) program, which is expanding beyond Cleveland State University with the support of AMVETS and the veterans' community.

Editor Isaac Pacheco also introduced a new "Tactical to Practical" column, reviewing gear that student-veterans may find useful when tackling their academic challenges ahead.

In this summer's "Keeping Posted," we highlight AMVETS from Indiana, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, and Ohio. Their stories range from a unique tribute to a fallen Marine to the continued contributions of a retired Air Force service dog.

Thank you for all of your submissions over the last couple of months. We received a wealth of "Keeping Posted" content for the summer's issue. Keep on the look out for more stories on American Veteran Online in the coming weeks.
