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.

At the heart of AVB lies our MISSION, which is to honor veterans, preserve their legacies, prevent veteran suicide, and provide advocacy for a systemic antidote that plagues veterans post-active service.

Our VISION enables us to achieve this mission by providing vital assistance and outreach programs for underserved homeless veterans, including case management, crisis intervention, gainful employment support, stabilized affordable housing, access to immediate care, education & training, recreational activities, family unification counseling, and mental health services while empowering them to live out a passionate, and purposefully driven life post-active service.

Our GOAL helps us accomplish our vision by CONNECTING our PAST and PRESENT military professionals to the FUTURE LEADERS of America. AVB fulfills our mission, vision, and goals by establishing a pathway to reignite and foster our shared comradeship and patriotism alongside our fellow veterans through this distinctive event that will endure for years. Our comprehensive approach embodies a seamless and complete generational torch-passing initiative that encapsulates the full circle of our commitment to our younger generation.

The AVB platform serves as a beacon of light and inspiration for our PASSION & PURPOSE ambitions, embodying the role of a LIGHTHOUSE committed to serving and protecting our focused populations as our VOCATIONAL CALLING. 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 fostering fellowship and extend HONOR and a SALUTE to our esteemed HEROES and SHEROES, forming a collective and meaningful SHARED COMMUNITY & 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.
