Message From Commander Lutz

My father James Lutz, is a Navy Veteran who served from 1963-1966.  He was a mechanic for the F4-B Phantom Jets.  My grandfather Michel Daymut served in the Army during WWII.  He received many medals, including the Sliver Star. I wanted to continue the family history of serving our country, however, for medical reasons I wasn't allowed.  For many years I wanted to find a way to pay service to our country and felt becoming part of the AMVETS family would give me the opportunity to serve my country.

            I have been involved with this organization for many years.  I started in my home town Post #22 in Vermilion, Ohio.  I went through the chairs at the local level and continue to serve locally.  While in service at the local level, I stood as the JR. AMVETS advisor on behalf of the Sons and all the other chairs.  I was District 13th Commander and the following year joined the Sons of AMVETS at the state level. My services at this level started as 3rd vice.  Through the years I climbed the chairs and now fill the seat as Sons Department Commander. I will embrace this role to the best of my ability with the help of my officers.   

            My Commander’s project this year is the Valor Home. It is governed by the VA. There is a full description available below and under the project tab on Ohio Son’s website.

            Thank You for your continuing support.  I look forward to serving you as the State of Ohio Sons of AMVETS Commander. 

Yours in Service,

William Lutz
