The base of the Vettys statuette represents such organizations and individuals that demonstrate a strong foundation.The Academy of United States Veterans was founded with one principle in mind: the importance of public service. Inspired by veterans of the United States military who found their purpose in serving their country, AUSV hopes to encourage a culture where caring for one another is not considered a duty, but a joy.This is why, for the third annual Veterans Awards, the Academy of United States Veterans will donate a portion of the evening’s profits to helping restore the livelihoods of our fellow citizens who have been affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma and Maria.We applaud the public servants and first responders who were not only risking their lives to keep people safe, but who stayed there and are still there to rebuild after the destruction and provide an unwavering support system throughout these tragedies that have moved an entire nation. We intend to activate the community of United States veterans and call upon them to serve their country once more in the regions that have experienced these horrific disasters. Furthermore, the Academy of United States Veterans will utilize the annual Veterans Awards as an opportunity to continue serving our country. With the support of our sponsors and attendees, every year we will dedicate 50 percent of the event’s profits to a cause that we believe is most pertinent to promoting the prosperity of our nation and the well-being of its citizens. We are grateful for everyone who has supported our mission up to this point and hope they are as encouraged as we are moving forward.
