From : AMVETS Department of Maine State Commander
Jerry Dewitt
I would like to welcome all AMVETS, Sons of AMVETS and Auxiliary AMVETS Members  to the 2015-2016 Year.
As most of you know that attended the 71th annual Convention in Auburn, Me , we had the biggest yet attendance.
I spoke with a lot of you and all informed me that they had an awesome time. Lets make the 2017 Convention even bigger and better….
Having been re-elected to another term as Commander I certainly look forward to working with Denise Rodzen, Ladies
AMVETS Auxiliary President, and Mark Pelletier Sons of AMVETS Commander, during the upcoming year.
I have a few aspirations for the AMVETS this year and hope we can accomplish these goals.
Our first DEC meeting will be held July 10 in New Gloucester  beginning at 10 sharp.
I would like to thank all my past officers for their cooperation and diligence this past year. W I look forward to working with all my new officers in the coming year. The DEC schedule is with the list of the Department Officers.
Yours in Service,
Jerry Dewitt
Department Commander
