New York State Sons of AMVETS Holds Spring Meeting

  Officers and members of the New York State Sons of AMVETS held their Spring Meeting in Binghamton, NY this past week.  Along with conducting the first round of officer nominations, the Sons assisted the Stand Up for Veterans with more than 50 man hours of help.

​  During the meeting it was decided to assist Canine Companions with $2,000 of food and veterinary care for pups who are training to be service animals for veterans.  The group also will be assisting the New York Run-for-the-Fallen by sponsoring a memorial flag for a fallen service member; and decided to help John Tracy Clinic.
