2014 Inde­pen­dent Bud­get

AMVETS often part­ners with other veteran/ uni­formed ser­vice orga­ni­za­tions and other orga­ni­za­tions which can assist in pro­mot­ing vet­er­ans issues in larger some­times broader voice to express our con­cerns to Congress.

For 20 years AMVETS has been a part­ner in devel­op­ing the Inde­pen­dent Bud­get, which annu­ally presents pol­icy and bud­get rec­om­men­da­tions on pro­grams admin­is­tered by the Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans’ Affairs (VA) and the Depart­ment of Labor.

Believ­ing the Amer­i­can flag is sacred and is a sym­bol which should be hon­ored, AMVETS sits on the Board of Direc­tors for the Cit­i­zen Flag Alliance (CFA). The CFA is a group of over 140 orga­ni­za­tions which sup­port an amend­ment to the Con­sti­tu­tion stat­ing: “The Con­gress shall have the power to pro­hibit the phys­i­cal des­e­cra­tion of the flag of the United States.”

The Mil­i­tary Coali­tion is a group of 35 vet­er­ans and uni­formed ser­vice orga­ni­za­tions with the goal of main­tain­ing a strong national defense by recruit­ing and main­tain­ing highly trained and pro­fes­sional ser­vice mem­bers in all seven of the uni­formed services.
