About AMVETS AMVETS MISSION STATEMENT: To enhance and safe­guard the enti­tle­ments for all Amer­i­can Vet­er­ans who have served hon­or­ably and to improve the qual­ity of life for them, their fam­i­lies, and the com­mu­ni­ties where they live through lead­er­ship, advo­cacy and services.

As one of America’s vet­er­ans ser­vice orga­ni­za­tions, AMVETS (or Amer­i­can Vet­er­ans) has a proud his­tory of assist­ing vet­er­ans and spon­sor­ing numer­ous pro­grams that serve our coun­try and its cit­i­zens. The help­ing hand that AMVETS extends to vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies takes many forms. One of the most vis­i­ble is our net­work of trained national ser­vice offi­cers (NSOs) accred­ited by the Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans Affairs. Funded by the AMVETS National Ser­vice Foun­da­tion, these ded­i­cated men and women can be found in close to 50 states, pro­vid­ing sound advice and prompt action on com­pen­sa­tion claims at no charge to the veteran. In one recent year alone, AMVETS national ser­vice offi­cers processed more than 24,000 claims that resulted in vet­er­ans receiv­ing some $400 mil­lion in com­pen­sa­tion. This com­mit­ment to ser­vice traces its roots back to 1948, when our NSOs first began help­ing vet­er­ans of World War II to obtain the ben­e­fits promised them by the fed­eral government. Coin­ci­den­tally, it was these return­ing vet­er­ans who pro­vided the impe­tus for form­ing AMVETS in the first place. At the time, many of them belonged to vet­er­ans clubs on col­lege cam­puses. As the num­ber of returnees swelled into the mil­lions, it was evi­dent that some sort of nation­ally orga­nized assis­tance for them would be needed. The older estab­lished national groups wouldn’t do; the lead­ers of this new gen­er­a­tion of vet­er­ans wanted their own organization. With that in mind, eigh­teen of them, rep­re­sent­ing nine vet­er­ans clubs, met in Kansas City, Mo., and founded The Amer­i­can Vet­er­ans of World War II 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. Here, some­thing as sim­ple as play­ing cards with the lonely or watch­ing tele­vi­sion with the dis­abled can make a world of difference. So can the assis­tance we give those who want to fin­ish their edu­ca­tion. Each year AMVETS awards schol­ar­ships total­ing $40,000 to deserv­ing high school seniors, ROTC stu­dents and vet­er­ans pur­su­ing higher education. But help­ing oth­ers is not lim­ited to our fel­low vet­er­ans. AMVETS mem­bers in more than 1,400 posts nation­wide also pro­mote and sup­port “qual­ity of life” community-service pro­grams rang­ing from Spe­cial Olympics and ROTC to scout­ing and organ-donor projects. Apart from these ini­tia­tives, the orga­ni­za­tion has thrown its mon­e­tary sup­port behind work on such national mon­u­ments as the USS. Ari­zona, the Statue of Lib­erty and the Viet­nam Vet­er­ans Memo­r­ial. It also spon­sors its own car­il­lon pro­gram to honor America’s deceased ser­vice­men and women. Since 1949, when Pres­i­dent Tru­man ded­i­cated the first car­il­lon at Arling­ton National Ceme­tery, this pro­gram has grown to encom­pass more than 60 sites in the United States and overseas. Another trib­ute unique to AMVETS is the Sil­ver Hel­met Award, often referred to as the Vet­er­ans Oscar. A replica of the World War II GI hel­met, this pres­ti­gious award is pre­sented annu­ally to rec­og­nize excel­lence and achieve­ment in Amer­i­can­ism, defense, reha­bil­i­ta­tion, con­gres­sional ser­vice and other fields. As the orga­ni­za­tion moves fur­ther into the 21st cen­tury, it does so with the con­vic­tion that its focus on pre­serv­ing free­dom, sup­port­ing America’s defend­ers and serv­ing her com­mu­ni­ties remains a clear blue­print for con­tin­ued ser­vice to God and country.

Mission: AMVETS Hawaii mission is to provide advocacy, support and assistance for military, veterans and their families; To inform, influence and inspire; and To honor and never forget those who died not only at Ewa Field, but also those many more who died in sea battles or distance coral atolls - Coral Sea, Midway, Wake- their names often never recognized or mentioned for their sacrifices. It is our duty and our solemn vow to never forget those who fought and died. Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future - Preserve and Honor: Remembering the legacy of those who came before us - Educate and Inspire: Passing the legacy on to the generations who will follow It is our duty and our solemn vow to never forget those who fought and died. Let us always honor the brave men of the USS Arizona with this memorial so they may rest in peace among the waves and know they will never be forgotten. President Lincoln said that speeches and statues are not an adequate repayment for service in defense of one’s country. One day of remembrance is simply not enough for what these veterans did 73 years ago. For we are able to choose freedom today because of the bravery of those men and women whose fate, on that day, had been chosen for them.

🌺 A Moment in Hawaiian History 🌺

In early January 1900, Chinatown suffered one of the greatest catastrophes of Hawaii's history.

At the end of Dec 1899, the black plague, also known as the bubonic plague, arrived in Oahu. A ship from Asia, where there had been an epidemic, arrived at the Honolulu harbor with a dead crew member who had been diagnosed with plague. The ship's crew was promptly quarantined; however, rats from the ship, carrying bubonic plague, made their way into Chinatown.

In January, one of the first cases of plague in a resident was confirmed near Smith and Pauahi streets. The Chinatown community was forced into lock down, guarded by military troops. Unless they could find a way to sneak out, no resident was able to leave the area.

To combat the rising incidences of plague, the board of health decided to set fire to any buildings where plague was found. Unfortunately, what was meant to be a controlled burn of specific buildings turned into a raging, out of control fire that burned 38 acres in Chinatown and beyond leaving nearly 4000 people homeless.

Hey everyone,

Here's a quick book status update - - We are still hoping the book will be ready to go by December 7th - The folks at the publishing house - As you can imagine - COVID has slowed down many businesses, and the book publishing business is no different. We still have a shot at the December 7, 2020 target date - It just all depends on what happens in the next few weeks in Arizona - The state of our publisher! We will keep our fingers crossed that not only will Lou's book be available but that everyone working so hard on the project will stay safe and healthy -If we miss the December 7th date, we are sure that the book will be available shortly thereafter.

Unsung Heroes | JAMES MONROE FLANAGAN

The remains of Navy Seaman 2nd Class James M. Flanagan, 22, of Jacksonville, Florida were accounted for on Nov. 19, 2019. Assigned to the USS Oklahoma, he was one of the many crewmen missing after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

He will be buried on Nov. 6, 2020 at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and a rosette will be added to his name at the Walls of the Missing, an indication that he has finally been accounted for.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions his funeral will be closed to the public but the cemetery is open for those who would like to pay their respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

I just came on board with AMVET Arizona Post, Retired Navy, and would like to introduce myself. I am a Disabled Viet Nam Vet. who served for 22 years with my first carrier being the USS Oriskany (CVA-34) and Command being VA-155 out of Lemoore, Ca. A few squadrons and ships latter I retired and began working for Army Hawaii as a civilian employee until my retirement last March serving my country and those serving for over 47 years. I am an avid SCUBA Diver and a PADI Master SCUBA Diver Instructor (MSDT) who is currently in Dive Master status. I have all my own equipment and dive at the drop of a hat. I am into weapons and reloading, archery and love to hunt. Being new with the AMVET I appreciate the assistance others can provide while I am getting my feet firmly on the ground. My E Mail is [email protected] and I look forward to meeting many at the AMVET meetings as I will be there for the 12 of Jan meeting.

Happy new year!
On the 50th anniversary of Pearl Harbor in 1991 I stood on the deck of the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor with the veterans and it was one of my greatest honors. Thank you to these men for their dedication to our country and for the lives lost, may they rest in peace. WE REMEMBER!
My Great-Uncle, Neil Mataweny Wilson,was a Machinist on the USS Arizona. My Mom wrote a short story/essay on what it was like to hear about Pearl Harbor on the radio while she was making out a Christmas card to her favorite uncle. Mary Regan is almost 92 but in good health. I'd like to get her to the Dec 7th ceremonies this year.
