AVB is a Certified 501(c)(3) non-profit veteran service organization that offers the “ONLY” ALL Armed Forces Service Ball in the country. The AVB was created to provide “ALL” veterans of the “Armed Forces” with the opportunity to participate in an annual service ball similar to our active service components. The most common denominator we discovered was that once we’d transitioned out of our respective branches of service, there was an immediate disconnection with these traditional and customary events of shared comradeship, which we’ve always treasured. Yet, despite this disconnection, whether in or out of the uniform, we still live out our instilled values and way of life as active leaders in our communities, workplace, and in every daily good endeavor, we perform.
AVB serves out its MISSION by creating a pathway to reignite, connect with, and maintain our patriotism with our fellow veterans through this unique event for years to come. We aim to highlight our PASSION & PURPOSE VISION that encompasses ending veteran suicide and aiding our underserved & homeless veterans to achieve residential stability through outreach programs, case management, crisis intervention, employment assistance, counseling, educational opportunities, recreational sports activities, the discovery of available benefits, mental health/wellness services, and living a purposeful life post active service. The GOAL of AVB is to CONNECT our PAST and PRESENT military professionals to the FUTURE LEADERS of America through our mission and vision aspirations. A full circle generational torch-passing initiative.
Please join us in celebration and in honoring our legacies. The AVB is open to “ALL” veterans (active, reserves, separated, or retired), their guests, civilian supporting arms, and the general public. Proceeds to benefit veteran initiatives, JROTC programs, children of fallen service veterans, youth leadership camps, inspiring educational scholarships, and future AVB events. We yield for your support in JOINING us and our VISION of fellowship as we HONOR & SALUTE our VETERAN HEROES community as a SHARED PATRIOTIC INVESTMENT.
