Indiana "Run for the Fallen"
Indiana's "Run for the Fallen" is a great opportunity for AMVETS members to get involved in a very worthwhile project. If you cannot sign up to actually run then make sure you participate in other ways. For more information use the contact info on the poster below.
AMVETS Partners With Coach Keady's Legacy Program
If you were at the Winter Conference you probably already know about Coach Keady and what he is doing for our veterans and their families. AMVETS Department of Indiana has partnered with the Coach's Legacy Program to reach out to our veterans in every community in the state. We are sponsoring quite a number of programs in a very beneficial link between the AMVETS and Coach Keady. To get an idea what is going on you can download the programs pamphlet here. (2mb).
It's not enough to just announce this partnership but we are counting on the Districts and Posts in the Department for assistance in making this a success. After all this is what the AMVETS is all about - helping our veterans and their families. The first thing we would like done is for our posts to put out a news release to the media in your community. A copy of the release can be found in the AMVETS Promotion package here. (1.2mb). Others include sponsoring one or two kids for basketball camp or purchasing sweatshirts for the "Keep a Veteran Warm" campaign (sweatshirt order forms are also in the Promotion package).
VA Dental Insurance Program
Did you know that the VA now has a dental insurance program? Well - they do! It appears to be a great program and I've heard nothing but praises from those that have already joined. You do have 2 options and the information I received was saying that the Delta Dental Program was much better but you all need to get the information and decide for yourself.

National Membership Drive
National has come up with a membership drive to reward those who are doing a great job on recruiting. They call it the 'Recruit 5 Membership Drive' and for every 5 new members you recruit you will receive a challenge coin and an entry into a drawing for a cellphone and a weeks vacation in California.
