The American Veterans Ball

Where PASSION meets PURPOSE


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.

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 we’ve discovered among transitioned veterans was that once they were discharged out of their respective branches they experienced an immediate disconnection to these types of traditional events. Yet, despite of this disconnection many veterans still find themselves living out their core values with purpose as civilians while serving their communities and contributing to the greater good as a way of life. Whether in or out of the uniform, we believe that an event such as the AVB, 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.
