3rd ANNUAL VETTYS
JANUARY 20, 2018 |THE mayflower HOTEL| WASHINGTON, D.C.
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 Veterans Awards is an annual event celebrating awards conferred by the Academy’s voting members. The 3rd Annual Veterans Awards (VETTYS) ceremony will be held on January 20, 2018, at the prestigious Mayflower Hotel.
The VETTYS 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.
We have the pleasure of co-hosting the 3rd Annual Veterans Awards alongside of the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes. The VETTYS will also benefit the Coalition for their tireless service to the veterans community.
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. Through their programs of aid and assistance, the Coalition offers individual contributors, corporations and volunteers many ways to give so veterans and their families receive what they need and deserve in return for the sacrifices they made for us.
Once again, we have the honor of joining forces with Paralyzed Veterans of America as our premier partner.
Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members – veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction.
Recognizes an institution that has surpassed expectations in its ability to provide high-level education opportunities to military members.
