Welcome to The  Ohio Veterans Association !

Aug. 15, 1945 is the official date of V-J Day, or Victory over Japan Day. V-J Day followed Victory in Europe Day by three months, and with the surrender of Japan who was the last axis power remaining, V-J Day marks the end of World War II.

  We are beginning our sixth year entertaining veterans in a Stand Down supported by AMVETS Department of Ohio.  We are proud to be associated with AMVETS, as they supported our Fifth Annual Stand Down in 2006. The Park National Bank, Department of Ohio AMVETS, and The Elks National supported our Tribute to our Scouts at Elks Lodge #391 in Newark, Ohio, 29 September 2007.

The Department of Ohio AMVETS and AMVETS Post 22, Vermilion, Ohio were recognized for their contributions to the welfare of our veterans. We are grateful for the support of the Elks, as they are very involved in our Scouts and veterans.
