AMVETS is a veterans service organization open to anyone who is currently serving, or who has honorably served, in the U.S. Armed Forces including the National Guard and Reserves.
Amvets Post 13 is comprised of United States Veterans dedicated to their country. We get together to help our brother veterans as well as our community. Working with our Ladies Auxiliary and the Sons of Amvets, we collect food during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays for needy families in the Harrison Ohio area. Many of these families may not be able to celebrate a traditional holiday without this help.
Throughout the year many other worthy causes are recipients of benefits from the Amvets. Post 13 prides itself on its efforts to help when needed, such as veteran families faced with having utilities turned off, local youth organizations needing to upgrade their musical program, children of veterans who may not have a Christmas, the list goes on and on. We are there when needed, because we care. Community service is always a priority!
Amvets 13 is also a social group. Our Canteen is the place to meet fellow members and shoot the breeze. Three wall mounted TVs provide sports and such for all. The canteen serves both alcholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as candy, chips, pizza etc. Special nights such as reduced rate nights, live entertainment and other events are planned perodically for you enjoyment.
Is Post 13 for you? As fellow veterans, we hope so. Feel free to check us out as a guest. Stop in and visit to see what you think. If you like what we have to offer, you can get an application from the bartender in the canteen. Bring your better half along, many of the other wives enjoy the canteen as well.
