“The Mission of the Order of AHEPA Veterans Committee is to archive and recognize all veterans of the Order of Ahepa through
sound communication and publication. Furthermore, to conduct fund raising and philanthropic outreach through a cohesive, limited,
yet well defined activity that reflects well on the Order of AHEPA and brings credit to the organization at large”
The AHEPA Medal for Military Service, acknowledged by the 106th Congress, was first presented to all AHEPA veterans present at the
34th Biennial Congressional Banquet, March 29, 2000. The Supreme Lodge then encouraged its districts and chapters to present this
medal to its deserving veterans unable to attend this banquet. It is this committee’s intent to register AHEPA Veterans and have the
AHEPA Medal presented at appropriate events at the District and Chapter levels. Funds collected through this effort cover medal
production and shipping. Remaining proceeds will be donated to the AHEPA Veteran Affairs projects annually.
Eligibility requirement for AHEPA Medal for Military Service includes Honorable Service and Discharge.
Service includes Active Duty, National Guard, or Reserve status of the United States Armed Forces. Medals are normally shipped in
the fall and in time for Veteran’s Day celebrations in November.
