Why Join AMVETS?
AMVETS is a vet­er­ans ser­vice orga­ni­za­tion devoted not only fel­low­ship, but also ser­vice to the com­mu­nity and other vet­er­ans. Join­ing with fel­low AMVETS in plan­ning and par­tic­i­pat­ing in post activ­i­ties, mem­bers pro­vide sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to all areas of our vet­er­ans’ com­mu­nity. Mem­bers have joined our orga­ni­za­tion not only for the plea­sures they may have derived dur­ing the years, but also for the con­tri­bu­tions they can pro­vide to the well being of AMVETS by work­ing coop­er­a­tively with fel­low mem­bers.

To be eli­gi­ble for mem­ber­ship in AMVETS, you must have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, includ­ing the National Guard and Reserves, any­time after Sept. 15, 1940. Addi­tion­ally, unless still serv­ing, your dis­charge must have been under hon­or­able con­di­tions. If you served as an Amer­i­can cit­i­zen in the armed forces of an allied nation, under hon­or­able con­di­tions, between Sept. 15, 1940 and May 8, 1975, you are also eli­gi­ble, as are wartime mem­bers of the Mer­chant Marine. Proof of eli­gi­bil­ity can take the form of a DD-214, an hon­or­able dis­charge cer­tifi­cate or other appro­pri­ate document.

Hawaii Post 1, USS Arizona Memorial annual dues is $30.00 and Life mem­ber dues is $250 as of 1/1/2012. These dues fund, in part, the pro­grams, ser­vices and rep­re­sen­ta­tion AMVETS provides.

You will be counted in our num­bers and help our efforts to pro­tect vet­er­ans’ rights in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. AMVETS National Head­quar­ters will share our ini­tia­tives and pur­pose through quar­terly issues of the Amer­i­can Vet­eran Mag­a­zine and e-mails. As a Mem­ber at Large you can­not vote in AMVETS elec­tions how­ever your mem­ber­ship is impor­tant to our efforts. At some point in your mem­ber­ship you may want to cre­ate or join a post. Posts are active through­out com­mu­ni­ties in Amer­ica uphold­ing the honor of vet­er­ans ser­vice and con­tin­u­ing to serve vet­er­ans and their com­mu­ni­ties.

PLEASE NOTE: When join­ing online, please note the mem­ber­ship ver­biage in the Mem­ber­ship Man­ual. If you join any­time before Sept. 1 of the cur­rent year, your mem­ber­ship is good for the cur­rent year only. If you join on or after Sept. 1, your mem­ber­ship is good for the next year.

Dis­claimer: AMVETS does not share with third par­ties the per­sonal or finan­cial infor­ma­tion of AMVETS mem­bers or mem­bers of the pub­lic.

The Classic Film “Tora! Tora! Tora!” Update:

tora_tora_tora

ALCON:

Classic Pearl Harbor Film To Be Shown At Ewa Ka Makana Mall 8-Plex (FREE).

The film was actually shot in the Ewa-Kapolei area in 1969 by 20th Century Fox using community extras and off duty military pilots. Before Special Effects, all scenes are highly realistic and almost a documentary.

The Classic Film “Tora! Tora! Tora!” in spectacularly digitally restored high definition DCP (Digital Cinema Package) edition will be shown by special invitation in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor and Ewa Field.

This film is the closest to the real December 7, 1941 attack that most people will ever see. A winner of numerous Academy Award nominations, the film is highly rated by historians and movie fans as a great classic.

Showtime will be 11 AM, Wednesday, October 12 at the Ka Makana mall Consolidated 8-Plex theater for specially invited community guests. This will include cadet school programs in the West Oahu area. Tickets will be limited so please make reservations as soon as possible.

Several key scenes of the film were actually shot at the 1941 Ewa Field ramp where the hangar was blown up. Other scenes were shot at the 1942 aircraft revetments where the Barbers Point stables are today.

The large fleet of authentic “Fox Air Force” B-17’s, P-40’s, Zeros, Kates and Vals were based at nearby Barbers Point Naval Air Station in 1969.

This special one time only Ewa-Kapolei showing has been made possible as a donation by Consolidated Theaters to the Ewa Battlefield Commemoration which will be held on Tuesday, December 6 at Ewa Field which was attacked on Sunday, December 7, 1941.

Reservations are made by emailing admin@ewabattlefield.org Or, admin@amvetshawaii.org.

This is an Official 75th Pearl Harbor Commemoration Event: Ewa Battlefield.
