From the Desk of the Vice Commander, Sept 1, 2023

Now we have Labor Day. Let’s work together and keep getting things done. Convention is over, and what a great time we had.

We have updated our Web site. Check it out at

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. 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: We toured the city of Oak Ridge, TN.  A very secret city in the late 30’s and 40’s.

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. Also, the board raised the annual dues to $35.00 and the life membership to $350.00.

The 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 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 $ 35.00 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
