SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR OUR DEFENDERS AT OLD GUARD PLAZA, JEFFERSON BARRACKS PARK ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20th
Do you support those that support us? Our first ever Defenders Appreciation Day for our military, Veterans, police officers, firefighters and EMTs at Jefferson Barracks Park will be on October 20th from 4-8 PM at Old Guard Plaza just outside of the Powder Magazine Museum. The event is sponsored by he Mungenast Automotive Family and Defenders Gateway. It's going to be a great day so come on out, show your appreciation and just have some fun celebrating our heroes.
The Soldier for Life mindset is a holistic approach to the military life cycle career of a Soldier. The U.S. Army takes care of teammates by ensuring Soldiers start strong, serve strong, and reintegrate strong so they remain Army Strong serving their communities after they leave the Army. The U.S. Army's strategic imperative of sustaining the All Volunteer Army is directly affected by how well the veterans reintegrate back into the communities. Gen. George Washington said,
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."
From being members of our local chapter to donating items for our events, we couldn't do it without our Community Partners. Support from companies like these are the backbone of strong financial support to our Soldiers and their families. AUSA’s Community Partners are local businesses, large corporations, civic groups, veteran’s organizations, societies and local community groups.
This program provides businesses and organizations the opportunity to demonstrate to the community that they support Soldiers and their families while strengthening their own outreach opportunities for as little as $175 per year.
Your membership in the AUSA is what makes events to support Soldiers, veterans, retirees and their families possible like our annual Leadership Awards Ceremony where we recognize the Soldiers of the Year from Missouri & Illinois and award scholarships to outstanding students. Our members are also the driving force behind Military Appreciation Day at Busch Stadium where we feed over 1200 Soldiers before the game.
We are THE Association of the United States Army. We are your professional organization for keeping you current on issues that affect you and your family. Membership is only $40 for 2 years or $400 to be a life member.
