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.

328FEFF4 E89D 42CF A1AA 77A5EA30F80D(1)

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.

Independence Day Parade

Invitation  to AMVETS

The Milford Fourth of July is definitely on despite rumors that it may have had to be cancelled.  This year, The Huron Valley Chamber of Commerce, MI Abilities, Inc. and AMVETs Post 2006 have been invited to serve as co-sponsors to assist the Milford Historical Society.

Serving as a Co-Chair on Parade Committee, I suggested that we make a strong effort to encourage our veterans and active military to join in the Parade.  As we have missed the Memorial Day parade for 2 years due to the pandemic, the Fourth of July Parade gives us a chance for the community express their appreciation for our service.  Our independence and continued freedom is a result of all who served.

Therefore, I invite your participation in the Milford 4th of July Parade and look forward to your response. If you have a uniform please wear it.  If you have a military vehicle, please bring it to show it off!   We are finally free from restrictions and can really enjoy this day!

The Parade will take place on Sunday July 4th, starting promptly at 11:00am.  Veterans will assemble and line-up at 10:00am  in the Parking lot on the Northwest Corner of Commerce and Main Street next to Charlies Still on Main Restaurant and Bar.  The Color Guard and the Veterans group will leave the lot promptly at 11:00 am. It will be a short walk as the Parade will turn into Central Park this year.

Click on the following link for a parade application for military vehicles.   This application must be filled out and returned no later than June 29th.  Send completed forms to bear@miabilities.org.

Please join us in making the Milford Annual 4th of July parade. Your participation will definitely help to make it a great patriotic event for our community.

Joe Salvia, Commander
