This morning, the Massachusetts Sons of AMVETS took to Capitol Hill, armed with AMVETS Legislative Priorities for 2011, to advocate for America's service members, veterans and their loved ones.
Led by Sons of AMVETS Past National Commander David Spencer, the Massachusetts contingency plans to meet with all 10 representatives in Congress and both Senators that comprise the Massachusetts Congressional delegation.
With the AMVETS family converging on Capitol Hill for AMVETS "LZ:DC," the Sons of AMVETS have come out in force in 2011 looking to surpass last year's total of more than 120 visits with legislators, enlisting help from members of AMVETS, AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary and the AMVETS Riders.
American Veteran will continue to bring you highlights throughout the week and all AMVETS family members are encouraged to keep submitting their content to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check back regularly for continuing updates from the LZ.
