This Week at American Veteran

This week at American Veteran, we will look back at the Fourth of July and ways in which AMVETS commemorated our nation's birth around the country.

We will also catch up with the AMVETS Legislative Department, as Congress reconvenes. On Wednesday, American Veteran will cover another hearing on the VA brachytherapy issue, as well as the development of the VA and Defense budgets in the Senate.

American Veteran's editorial staff is also in the final stages of building the summer issue of the magazine, where we will discuss the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, which is set to roll out on August 1.

We also continue to follow the situation in Afghanistan, where an American soldier remains missing in action and Marines have commenced major operations against the Taliban.

As always, we're eager to hear from Posts and Departments about the unique programs and events taking place around the country. We also continue to look for submissions for our "Women in Service" feature.

Be sure to check in regularly with American Veteran Online for updates.
