AV Volunteers for the Fall Fun Fest to Support the Armed Forces Retirement Home and the Friends of the Soldiers Home
Washington D.C. – October, 2016 – Associated Veterans, LLC (AV) Associates came together to enjoy a beautiful fall Sunday afternoon to volunteer with the Friends of the Soldiers Home and help with their annual Fall Fun Fest in support of the Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH). Associates managed the carnival games stations while many Veteran residents of the AFRH attended the event and had a great time!
Friends of the Soldiers Home is a 501 (c)(3) organization serving to strengthen the bond between the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington and the surrounding community. Through service, education and engagement, Friends of the Soldiers Home connects citizens and Veterans in a relationship that recognizes the sacrifice of military service and enhances quality of life for Veteran and citizen alike.
The AFRH is an independent agency in the Executive branch which provides residences and related services for certain retired and former members of the Armed Forces. The AFRH is the modern incarnation of a long history of efforts to care for our nation's older and disabled Veterans dating back to the early 1800s. In 1992 Naval and Military institutions (founded in 1834 and 1851, respectively) were merged to form the foundation of what has become the modern AFRH.
AV is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) which has been serving government agencies since 2007. AV is always on the lookout for great Veterans related events and causes to get involved with.
