The Alamo Chapter assists through fundraising, bringing dollars to those in need within our military community. We educate the local public about our National Defense and economic power that is provided to our community. We continually call out to all who wish to serve through volunteerism; Retirees, Separated Veterans, and Concerned Citizens who are high energy and want to give back to the Giants and Heroes who walk among us. We work to unite our military and civilian communities by working with corporations and businesses big or small, to become a Community Partner, sharing values consistent with what makes our nation strong, relevant, and proud. We continually participate in many programs and events within our community, always trying to connect and make our home a better place for all to live.

May, marked officially as Military Appreciation Month, is a special month for both those in and out of the military.
Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the chance to publicly show their appreciation for troops past and present.
National Military Appreciation Month is celebrated every May and is a declaration that encourages U.S. citizens to observe the month in a symbol of unity. It honors current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including those who have died in the pursuit of freedom.
