Bringing the Brazilian Marines Veterans together!
AVCFN-USA promotes mutual trust and friendship among Brazilian Marines Veterans living in the United States. We are the US branch of the Brazilian Marine Corps Veterans Association founded back in 1972. We are a Non-Profit Organization oriented to promote contact between Brazilian Marines veterans, military in general and keep in touch with the Brazilian Marine Corps.
The AVCFN-USA conducts social and military activities with its members.
As veterans, we strive to keep our bonds created by common values and life events. We participate in social-military activities and help our communities.
Brazilian Marines represented on Memorial Day
On the Memorial Day (May, 25th), the Brazilian Marine veteran Humberto MOTTA (Tampa - FL) teamed up with other American veterans on an 8 miles march to show our appreciation for all the military. The march has been completed in 2h 40min with all participants carrying 50 lbs backpacks, showing great stamina and endurance! We praise our friend MOTTA and our fellow American veterans remembering the sacrifices of our military. MOTTA is a true Marine that embodies the Brazilian Marines spirit. Way to go! ADSUMUS!
Brazilian Marines Veterans Association First Reunion
On September, 7th. we had the first AVCFN-USA reunion. The meeting happened in Dartmouth - MA and counted 13 veteran marines. We reunited veteran marines of different times and places that share our common values and enjoyed ourselves in a nice barbecue. We had veterans coming from Florida, Massachusetts, Illinois, and New Hampshire, a testimony of the level of commitment and friendship of the Brazilian Marine Corps Veterans who live in the USA. We did also talk about the association, future activities, and how to help our communities. It has been a day of joy and fun! A special note of appreciation to Leslie for having such noisy crowd in her backyard (we did pay with some push-ups!).
