New AMVETS post opens in Rock River valley

There is a new American Veterans (AMVETS) post in the Rock River Valley and Post 922 is looking for you.

Amvets Post 922 was recently formed and received its Charter from the National Amvets Commander-in Chief, Harold Chapman, in a personal awarding of the Charter event in Springfield on September  17.

We, the members of Amvets Post 922 are honored to have made this achievement, so as to further help veterans and their families in the region, that we are offering an opportunity for new members.

Amvets Post 922 is celebrating its beginning in the Rockford, IL metro area by offering a free, yearly membership to the first 100 qualified veterans of the U. S. military and active duty personnel that join us. Proof of service is needed, such as a DD-14 Honorable Discharge form or equivalent.

There is a deadline for this free membership – your information and copy of discharge needs to be postmarked by November 11, Veterans Day. (Should you choose to do so, a Life Membership is $250).

Mail your information to Steve Thomas – PR Officer, Amvets Post 922, P.O. Box 567 Roscoe, IL 61073. You can also fax your information to 1-815-516-5164.
