AMVETS Membership Report May







Make your Memorial Day plans. It is our opportunity to remind America of the sacrifices made, the lives lost. AMVETS has a personal connection and an obligation.






We see civil war in countries around the world. Internal battles, ideas escaping and brought to life in conflict. Ideologies brought us the 38th parallel and a divided Korean Peninsula.  When Mohammed passed, who got the tent Abu or Ali? Sunni and Shia haven’t been talking for 1400 years. Long argument. The winners shed the blood of patriots and ideas lost spill the blood of terrorists. Four years of Civil War carnage in America left 600,000 Americans dead on battlefields across the nation.  To remember the 600,000 brother’s sisters mothers and fathers that fell on Americas soil, the last Monday in May is set aside as Memorial Day. We remember as a Nation and as individuals. We will represent you on the Nations Mall again this year.

Reflection is good for the soul.

If you are in DC over the Memorial Day weekend stop by our tent. We will be onsite Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Plan your Post and Dept events. If you need some literature email Warren Cox at Let us know  the 5 W’s.

Gabriel Conde died for America Tuesday last week. He was 22. He died in Afghanistan, far from his family and friends in Loveland Colorado. He didn’t die alone, he was with AMVETS and he is remembered by AMVETS. Gabriel

This year take a look at the IRS new tool the EOBMF. Find your ein and know the IRS holds you in good standing. Don’t see your ein let me know so we can solve the problem. As a leader, you may not be involved in filing the 990’s. You should always ask to see the confirmation. It closes the circle. Why should the person submitting the 990N have a printer? (answer is in second image below) Why is the 1st confirmation OK? What is the issue with the second confirmation below? Note the note, on the second IRS Confirmation of Submission (IRSCS)


If you are a canteen there is a good chance you are paying someone to do your 990. Their receipt looks a little different see below from a LA CPA. Make sure you have a copy of the IRS Confirmation of Submission (IRSCS)




Here are 3 tools you can use to manage your Post(s)
