In honor of our global unity of forces and our Nation’s Service Members, the Academy of United States Veterans will host the 2017 Veterans of All Nations Gala. Located in the heart of Hollywood, the historic American Legion Post 43 will serve as the backdrop for this spectacular event.
As our nation revels in its independence, Veterans, elected officials, and celebrities will gather while fostering unity and will shine a light on the vital role our NATO alliance plays in securing our global borders.
The mission of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes is to help severely-wounded veterans and families of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn recover from their injuries and illnesses, and to inspire other organizations and the general public to participate in this effort.
An opportunity to collaborate amongst Veterans Service Organizations, Veteran program coordinators and influential leaders in the Veterans community. The Power of Collaboration brunch will provide a platform to strategize and innovate new methods that will highlight the importance of Veterans' needs.

In 2015, the Academy of United States Veterans established an annual event at which it presented and recognized the most impactful entities that contribute to the well being of the Veterans' community. The Vettys (Veterans Awards) is an annual event celebrating awards conferred by the Academy’s voting committee. The 3rd Annual Vettys will be held on January 20, 2018, at the prestigious Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The Veterans Awards will be presented in reflection of the recipients' work in 2017. The nominees must exemplify consistency, extraordinary quality of public service, exemplary advocacy efforts, demonstrate exceptional contribution or outstanding service to the Veterans' community.
AUSV will welcome Washington dignitaries, community supporters,representatives from distinguished Veteran Service Organizations, dependents of Veterans, and Veterans themselves to the Vettys ceremony. During the award ceremony, the "Vetty" will be presented to an individual or an organization that has contributed to the community of Veterans in a specific category. The Vetty is meant to represent the highest form of appreciation from our American community towards organizations that have made significant contributions in the Veterans community.
Each non-profit organization will have the opportunity to nominate itself in one of the six categories. Once the nominees have been established, a committee will determine the six winners. We leave the decision to the military wife who needed support to hold her family together while her husband was deployed for months on end. We leave the decision to the injured combatant who needed the help of the American community to be able to continue to provide for his family. We leave the decision to the fearless men and women who have unselfishly served and supported our country for years. More information coming soon...
