Description:
AMVETS (American Veterans) Organization Posts.
Expanded Description:
The American Veterans of World War II was founded in Kansas City, Missouri, on Dec. 10, 1944. Less than three years later, on July 23, 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed Public Law 216, making AMVETS the first World War II organization to be chartered by Congress.

Since then, the original charter has been amended several times to admit as members those who served in different eras. Today, membership in AMVETS is open to anyone who is currently serving, or who has honorably served, in the U.S. Armed Forces from World War II to the present, to include the National Guard and Reserves.

As a volunteer-led organization, we annually elect and/or appoint officers at the national, district, department and post levels. Each August, representatives from these levels attend the AMVETS national convention to make decisions on issues affecting veterans and the organization.

Over the years, AMVETS has been in the forefront of public-policy related to national defense, services for homeless veterans, adequate funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs, concurrent receipt of retirement pay and disability compensation by disabled military retirees, veterans employment and training, POW/MIA accountability and flag protection.

In addition to the work of our national service officers, other AMVETS members, as well as those in the AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary, will devote as many as 250,000 hours of free time a year to brighten the lives of hospitalized veterans.

Instructions for Posting a AMVETS Waymark:

1). COORDINATES: Personally obtained coordinates must be obtained as close to the actual object, structure or memorial site as possible. For buildings, the coordinates should be the main entrance.

2). PHOTOS: In most cases more than one photo will be required to display the site properly! Consider both panoramic and close-up photos. Signs and plaques should always be highlighted with clear close-up shots. While we don't expect professional photography, waymarks submitted with underexposed, blurred, skewed or otherwise poor quality photos may be declined. For buildings, one photo should be a clear close-up of a sign or identifying lettering. We prefer for the text also to be typed into the long description for those who may not be able to read the photos and so it will be searchable. All photos must be the waymarker's original photos and be placed in the photo gallery.

3). DESCRIPTIONS: Keep in mind that the quick description is what people see when browsing, so do your best to give a succinct description that will give people at a glance an overview of the waymark. The long description may contain additional information about the AMVETS post and its activities. Only AMVETS posts are eligible for this category. If you copy and paste, please give proper attribution.

4). VARIABLES: Please make a good faith effort to provide the information for the variables. Most are not required as they may not apply in all instances. Addresses should be supplied for all buildings.

5). WAYMARK NAME: The city and state or country must be at the end of each waymark name. Two letter state abbreviations are preferred. For AMVETS posts, please include the post number and name using the following format: Post #1 Alvah R. Drav - Tacoma, WA
