A Word from the Sons Squadron Commander:

Our Mission

Sons of AMVETS is a nationwide service organization comprised of male descendants of American veterans. As part of the AMVETS family, we are united in service and dedicated to improve quality of life, advocate legislation for increased benefits and care, provide and support charitable assistance to veterans, their families, and community.

Locally, the Sons of AMVETS Squadron 176, supports the
activities and facilities of the AMVETS both financially and with service hours.

Squadron 176 also support the events and activities of the AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary, active duty troops, and many different veterans’ homes and groups. We also support community causes and events. One example is the Sons provide $3,000 in scholarships to Revere High School graduates annually.

Our funds come from three annual fundraising events. A steak fry / reverse raffle in the spring, co-sponsorship of the community steak fry in August and a clam bake / reverse raffle in the fall.
