6TH VETTYS UPDATES
The Veterans Awards, also known as the VETTYS, is an essential part of our mission of community empowerment. Due to the recent pandemic, the date has been moved from November 11, 2020 to May 14, 2021.
The 6th VETTYS will be a masquerade extravaganza bringing the community together in style.
VETTYS INAUGURAL BALL
It is about the country, not about the Party.
When we are in combat, our priorities come down to the man or woman to our left and right. Never once, we care about politics, ideals or points of view. I think the American people have something fundamental to learn from our service members: This country is about tolerance, generosity and unity. We saw it when we went to war with Iraq and again when September 11 happened. We see it everyday during this life changing pandemic. As an immigrant, I have never been more proud to be an American. That is why on January 20, 2021 we will come together to celebrate our Democracy as we witness history in the making in this great Republic. We hope to see you at the Vettys Inaugural Ball on January 20, 2021- Assal Ravandi, AUSV President
“I see Americans of every party, every background, every faith who believe that we are stronger together: black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American; young, old; gay, straight; men, women, folks with disabilities, all pledging allegiance under the same proud flag to this big, bold country that we love. That’s what I see. That’s the America I know! ”
