In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our Founding Members, Bill Flanagan. A stalwart in Virginia politics, “The Colonel” as Bill is known, left his indelible thumbprint on every organization he served, including ours. His positive influence will be greatly missed. He is preceded in death by his wife Diane, another of our Founding Members who passed in September. Details of his service can be found at the following link: COL William “Bill” Joseph Flanagan, Jr. Obituary 2023 – E. Alvin Small Funeral Home (ealvinsmall.com)

“We Speak As Veterans, Not For Veterans.”

On active duty, we all consciously served beyond politics as we swore an oath to Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States, not a party or a political leader. Now as citizens and Veterans, all members of AVV understand the urgency to step forward once again in Service. We believe the oath we took did not end with our departure from military service but continues through today.  We also welcome our non-Veteran Mission Partners who have joined us in this endeavor. Our nation struggles to keep our constitutional republic intact, heal and unite communities, and restore love and respect for our great nation and people.
