Worthy Brother Knights,

May it be said that you and yours are among those known as:
  A Few Good Men.

I am pleased and honored to be serving as the Georgia State Council Representative for the Veterans Administration Voluntary Services (VAVS) Program. The primary purpose of the VAVS program is to support our Veterans -- the men and women whose sacrifices have preserved the very Liberty we cherish. I am asking that each Council and Assembly establish a Veterans Committee (if you have already done so, Thank You!).

NOTE: The Council or Assembly Veterans Committee should consists of at least two men who desire to coordinate efforts for local Veterans and to generate support for regional events. Check the Ideas List (click to open list) for committee activity suggestions. Any Knight interested in serving on such a committee is welcome to contact me at 404-323-2021 or asic@bellsouth.net.

Veteran support in Georgia is divided into three regions -- Atlanta, Augusta, and Dublin. Please click on the buttons above, to access specific information about each region (Regional VA Point of Contact, Upcoming Events, Current Needs). While the state is divided into regions, individual Knights and Councils/Assemblies are free to support the Veterans in any region.

Supporting our Veterans can take many forms. Knights can provide support by participating in an upcoming Veterans event or visiting a Veterans center or hospital. Perhaps you can collect and send care packages containing some of the items on the regional needs list. Support can also come from Councils or individual Knights in the form of financial contributions. Contributions in support of our Veterans can be made via our secure online donation site. Whatever form your support may take, know that I, and more importantly, our Veterans are immensely grateful. Thank you!

Vivat Jesus,
