Kicking off our Annual Veterans Conference is the “Wounded Warrior Experience.” This program is a free event and features service members wounded in combat, focusing on their stories and on resources available to injured service members. Specifically the program has a panel discussion on opportunities for veterans making the transition from the military to civilian life, including different employment options for returning and wounded soldiers.

This program is broadcast several times throughout Veterans Day weekend to millions worldwide by DoD News. This year we hope to syndicate this program to a host of commercial television stations around the nation.

For fifteen years, the American Veterans Center Honors has closed the AVC’s Annual Conference, calling attention to America’s greatest heroes from the last 75 years of our military’s history. This event honors American heroes from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Honorees are saluted for their valor, sacrifice and service – both on the battlefield and in the years since they have served. Beginning in 2012, we began a partnership with the Department of Defense and DoD News to create the first and only televised awards show honoring those who deserve it most: our veterans and military men and women. The program is titled “The American Veterans Center Honors” and proved a tremendous success. The Honors is the highlight of the conference weekend, and was created following 15 years of honoring our military’s greatest heroes at the AVC’s awards gala. This year’s American Veterans Center Honors will take place on Saturday, November 7.
