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.
At the heart of AVB lies our MISSION to honor and support our veterans while empowering the next generation. Our GOAL further enriches this mission to CONNECT our PAST and PRESENT military professionals to the FUTURE LEADERS of America. AVB fulfills its VISION by establishing a pathway to reignite, foster, and sustain our shared patriotism alongside our fellow veterans through this distinctive event that will endure for years to come.
These events serve as a platform where we illuminate our PASSION & PURPOSE ASPIRATIONS, embodying the role of a LIGHTHOUSE committed to eradicating veteran suicide and providing vital assistance to our underserved and homeless veterans. Our multifaceted outreach programs encompass case management, crisis intervention, employment aid, counseling, educational opportunities, recreational sports activities, access to available benefits, mental health, and wellness services, and facilitating a purpose-driven life post-active service. This comprehensive approach represents a seamless generational torch-passing initiative that encapsulates the full circle of our commitment.
We cordially invite you to partake in the celebration and commemoration of our enduring legacies. AVB welcomes “ALL” veterans – whether active, reserves, separated, or retired – along with their esteemed guests, the dedicated civilian supporting arms, and the wider public. The proceeds from this event will be channeled towards invaluable veteran initiatives, JROTC programs, assistance for children of fallen service veterans, youth leadership camps, inspiring educational scholarships, and future AVB endeavors. Your support is paramount as we unite to realize our VISION of fostering fellowship and extending HONOR & SALUTE to our esteemed VETERAN HEROES and community, forming a collective and meaningful SHARED PATRIOTIC INVESTMENT.
