The AMVET Post, in it’s own community anywhere in the nation, is the basic unit of the AMVETS organization. Posts vary in size from the newly chartered, with a minimum of 10 members, to some with more than 2,000 members. Each post conducts it’s local programs and participates in AMVETS-related state and National organization activities.
For more than 50 years, the “green hats” of AMVETS have served the veterans, the community, and the nation through their extensive programs; including, but not limited to, active participation in the Department of Veterans Affairs Volunteer Services Program VAVS) to assist with hospitalized veterans, Special Olympics, patriotic observances, Americanism programs, ROTC awards, Scouting, blood and organ donor programs, Freedom Foundation, and drug and alcohol abuse education.
AMVETS is truly a family organization. Wives, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, and granddaughters of AMVETS are eligible for membership in the AMVETS Auxiliary, while sons and daughters between 7 and 17 years of age may join Junior AMVETS. The fun-and-honor group of AMVETS is known as the Sad Sacks, while its counterpart is the Auxiliary Sackettes. All male descendants, adopted sons, grandsons, and stepsons of AMVET members and deceased members, or servicemen who died and who would have been eligible for membership in AMVETS, and who is at least 18 years of age may join the Sons of AMVETS.
