On behalf of Region VI Command Council of the National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. (NABVETS), and Region VI Command Council I would like to thank and welcome to our Website.  For over fifty-four years NABVETS (est. 1969), a National non-profit membership organization, has provided services to veterans in addressing the holistic, intellectual, leadership, economical, and moral issues of veterans, their families, and communities. The Association has members across the United States, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and the Dominion Republic – members - valued for their support of broad veterans’ initiatives, projects, and services. Although NABVETS is an organization developed by and for Black Veterans, ALL Veterans are welcome to join, and ALL veterans are provided services.

NABVETS priorities are to address issues of veteran’s homelessness, youth empowerment, and community development. Veterans possess the experience, knowledge, discipline, training, and capacity to unite among themselves and with citizen soldiers to make a difference in the quality of life for youth, families, and their community. It is NABVETS philosophy that Veterans have protected America on foreign soil and must now continue that commitment at home.  

NABVETS members, as productive and responsible adults, can influence and affect change to strengthen their families, communities, and the larger society. Toward this end, veterans are encouraged to join a NABVETS Chapter for membership (non-military may join our Auxiliary in support) in their community (and at large). I recommend that you do the same and assist with the implementation and operation of service programs, which are directed to veterans, and their families.   We are seeking to increase our membership with your presence.  Reach out to us, if you wish to join the mission!  We desire your assistance in the assistance of caring for veterans after service in the community and in our country.  We welcome and encourage contact with our active duty-veterans.

We are Forever positive in the face of negativity, meaning we have and will convey a spirit of "Let's Get It Done", at all times.

We welcome you to  Region VI Command Council of The National Association for Black Veterans Inc. (NABVETS) website. We are happy that you have taken the time to visit our site. We hope that you will find the information  you are looking for. We hope to "Create a more positive lifestyle", for you and your families, and any other Veteran you may know.

We look to educate young people by sharing the life experiences that we have lived and above all create a more positive lifestyle for all veterans.
