Armed Forces and Military Veterans Appreciation Inc. (AFMVA) was established in 2014 to carry out its mission of support and assistance. Our goal is to be available to provide help in areas of job connection, education, relocation assistance, and transition from active duty to civilian life; working in partnership with the North Las Vegas Veterans Community Commission.
Our first event, Armed Forces and Military Veterans Appreciation in 2014 gave us the privilege of serving and providing entertainment for approximately 8,000 of our Active Military, Veterans and their families.
In EARLY 2016, in addition to our military and veterans, and in recognition of “Patriot Day” proclaimed by presidential executive order, we included honoring those 2,977 individuals who perished on September 11, 2001, many of whom were veteran citizens, police, firefighters and first responders.
On June 15, 2016, North Las Vegas Mayor and Council, adopted a resolution that will now provide us honoring those who lost their lives in 2001, along with our military and first responders who continue to serve our country. In appreciation we will honor them each year in October.
AFMVA qualifies for public charity status under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
