Commander's Welcome

Welcome to American Veterans Post 2006 in Milford Michigan. This Post was chartered in March of 2006 for the purpose of providing an organization that includes all military veterans who were honorably discharged from 1942 through present day. The Post includes a majority of Veterans who otherwise would not be able to join other Veterans Service Organizations (VSO’s) due to eligibility requirements. Peacetime and Cold War Veterans are examples of those Veterans we welcome and encourage to be part our Post.

Since our charter, the Post has grown from an initial membership of 15, to a present day number of 165. Our members are enjoying the camaraderie of other veterans, while supporting projects and functions designed to support veterans, veteran’s families, and the community.

 

Thank you for visiting our website. Should you have additional questions about our Post feel free to notify us via our contact page.

Major Oakman Hurd (RIP)

On July 1 the AMVETS Honor Guard and VFW Post 9914 rendered military honors at Great Lakes National Cemetery for Major Oakman Hurd. Major Hurd was a decorated Army (Huey) helicopter pilot in Viet Nam. He was awarded The Silver Star for gallantry above and beyond the call of duty during a rescue operation in Viet Nam. Major Hurd was a member of AMVETS Post 2006 and VFW Post 9914.

The Rifle Team was commanded by John Robinson and consisted of AMVETS members Paul Clover, Richard Fauklner, Larry Shaver, Steve Moore, Michael Willihnganz and Bob Szymanski. Joe Salvia assisted with the Army flag folding and presentation team. VFW members provided the Color Guard and VFW Post 9914 hosted the Hurd family and friends with a luncheon in honor of Oakman at their Post.
