About The American Veterans Ball
The Salute to The American Veterans Ball was created to provide "all" Veterans of "all" the Armed forces an opportunity to participate in an annual service ball similar to our active components. The most common denominator that we'd discovered was that once veterans transitioned out of their respective service components, there were often times an immediate disconnection came about with such a traditional and customary event of shared comradeship. Despite this disconnection, they still live out the values and way of life instilled in them as patriotic veterans. An evening to reignite, connect with, and to celebrate our patriotism with our fellow brothers and sisters through thus unique event helps for years to come. Please join us in celebration in Saluting our past, present, and future Veterans. Learn more online at www.americanveteransball.org.
