My Original 2010 Chapter
What I and Fred Hargrove Sr. and Robert Harris planned in 2012.
We, myself and Robert Harris are now starting a new Chapter – with veterans from all of the people of the African Union outside of the USA and in the USA who wish to join us – you do not have to a Vet.
The benefits of being a NABVET member are many. In addition to the camaraderie from fellowship with other Veterans and knowing that there are other Veterans who share your passion for giving back to the community and helping other Veterans, NABVETS offers members a broad range of benefits, including the following:
