The American Veterans Ball

A Shared Community Investment


The goal of the AVB is to CONNECT our PAST and PRESENT military veterans to our nation’s next generation and FUTURE leaders of America while keeping them true to the Red, White, & Blue.  It will also serve and provide veterans of “ALL” the Armed Forces the opportunity to participate in a customary annual event comparable to those of our active service components. The most common denominator that the AVB Founders discovered was that once service members’ transitioned out of their respective branches of service, they experienced a disconnection to these types of traditional comradeship events. Yet, despite of this disconnection many find themselves living out the core values and way of life, as “civilians”, post their active service contribution. We believe that an event such as the AVB, not only fosters a way to contribute towards youth development and communities, but also creates that pathway to reignite, connect with, and maintain our patriotism with our fellow brothers and sisters through this unique event for years to come. Please join us in celebration in Saluting our past, present, and future Veterans. This event is open to ALL veterans, guest, civilian supporting arms, and the general public. Secure your tickets NOW!

History

The Birth of the American Veterans Ball


The birth of the American Veterans Ball was ignited by a group of retired and separated armed forces service veterans in Stafford, VA.

The American Veterans Ball (AVB) was designed to provide veterans of “ALL” the Armed Forces the opportunity to participate in a customary annual event comparable to those of our active service components.

The American Veterans Ball was created on (Veterans Day) November 11, 2014.

The American Veterans Ball was birth at a local restaurant called Applebees located in Stafford, VA while the core group enjoyed a free meal and swapped memorable experiences on Veterans Day in recognition of their patriotism and service to their country.

The most common denominator that the AVB Founders discovered was that once service members’ transitioned out of their respective branches of service, they experienced a disconnection to these types of traditional comradeship events. Yet, despite of this disconnection many find themselves living out the core values and way of life, as “civilians”, post their active service contribution. We believe that an event such as the AVB, not only fosters a way to contribute towards youth development and communities, but also creates that pathway to reignite, connect with, and maintain our patriotism with our fellow brothers and sisters through this unique event for years to come.  As LEADERS we were taught to identify gaps, fill the void, bridge the gap, AND accomplish the mission. “SO WE DID.” Its result, the birth of the American Veterans Ball. SOW, REAP, GROW.
