The South Alabama Veterans Council is an organization dedicated to serving all Veterans.
ORGANIZATIONS (savc.info) in this context. These are membership groups for US military Veterans, several of which allow and encourage non-Veteran associate memberships, that support the causes of Veterans plus endeavor to meet needs in the local community through various service projects. If you are a Veteran, or wish to support Veterans and your community, we encourage you to contact one or more of the organizations. Keep in mind you can do more for the organization, and your community, than each can do for you. That is the nature and ultimate benefit of service... and its satisfaction.

Did you know the Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs is NOT part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs?
The ADVA is a State of Alabama department that assists former members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their dependents in numerous capacities. We provide services that complement those of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This includes the preparing of claims for and securing compensation, hospitalization, education, vocational training, and other benefits or privileges that veterans may be qualified for under Federal or State Law, or regulation, by reason of their military service. Among our many facilities, we operate state veterans homes, a state veterans cemetery, and numerous Veterans Service Offices (VSO) around the state.
The separate U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is comprised of a Central Office (VACO) and field facilities throughout the nation administered by its three major line organizations: the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), and the National Cemetery Administration (NCA).
