From the Desk of the Vice Commander, Aug 2023

Here is summer!  Let’s work together and keep getting things done. Convention is getting here quickly. Several have sent in their fee and looks like a good time will be had.

Keith & Mary Ann are doing the newsletter, but we need someone to help with it. Learning the ins and outs of putting the newsletter together. Then off to the printing.

We are in need of a Newsletter Editor. Do you or someone you know want to help NAAV out?  This is a lot of work for someone, maybe a couple of people.

  Convention: Will be in Knoxville, TN  August 17th-20th Get ready to join us. We have a few members that have already sent in their forms and cash for the Convention.

We have new prices on some of our NAAV items in the store. I will get a new list out on the web page, soon. The jackets are $ 75.00, T-shirts are $ 35.00 and caps are $ 30.00.

 VA is offering vets a fall alert free of any charges. It is called the Liberty Honor Alert. Ask your doctor about this.

 Keith is staying busy with a lot of projects. He is a very busy person. We need to thank him for the time he spends doing what he does.

We have many members and spouses with health problems. We need to keep them in our prayers.

Membership:  We have lost several members, due to age. We have been checking on passed members, who have not updated their information. If your dues are not up to date, you will not receive the next Newsletter.

Keith has set up an account to pay your dues online, or order from the store and want to pay online call Keith. His phone # is 612-232-6596.

I will repeat this. “Keep working with your states and Federal Congress to Get July 16th as Atomic Veterans Day annually. Also get a section of highway to become Atomic Veterans Memorial Highway.

State Commanders PLEASE please make contact with your members and get members to get current in dues and Information.  Just $ 25.00 will get them current. Please update your information. If your phone numbers are not current, e-mail or call with that information. When you send in dues let us know of any changes. Thank you to members that send in extra dues earmarked for helping someone that needs help with their dues and other support of Please make checks out to NAAV, not to me. Let’s help update the database.

 A big thank you to the State commanders and members that have supported NAAV.  Many of our life members have passed away and we were not notified.

Please stay safe and be carful!

Thank you,

Fred Schafer, National Vice Commander (
