March 26, 2018, marked the seventieth anniversary of the American GI Forum of the U.S. and seven decades after World War II, it still tenaciously addresses the problems affecting Hispanic veterans. Thanks to the organization’s early leadership, the AGIF-US quickly expanded from its first office in Corpus Christi, Texas, to many chapters throughout the United States, and over the years it came to support, not only Hispanic veterans, but also all U.S. veterans and their families. The U.S. Congress Chartered the AGIF-US as a Veterans Family Organization on its 50th anniversary, acknowledging the role many members of the organization play as leaders of their communities, earning the respect of city, state, and national officials. AGIF-US held their Mid-Year Conference April 22-24, in Las Vegas, and will hold their National Conference in San Antonio, on July 26-28, 2018. The year ends with the 2018 Veterans Day Ceremony Reception in Washington, D.C. Transportation to the reception will be provided after the conclusion of the Veterans Day Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. POCs for the Veterans Day Reception are Monica Valdiviez, (202) 309-3677, monicavaldiviez@outlook.com, and Ernesto Hernández III, (210) 269-4448, ernesto.hernandez@woundedpawproject.org. For conference info contact the National Office at (719) 406-6473. Donations can be sent to 635 W. Corona, Suite 114, Pueblo, CO 81004.
