AMMV Gallery

These are the faces that we fight for. The stories that we want to tell. AMMV is dedicated to showing the world that these brave, seafaring people are heroes. While there is a lot of pain that Veterans endure, we want to uplift and display the joy that is part of their lives as well. Our tributes, conventions, and other events are spaces of remembrance, recognition, and lots of smiles.

A Tribute to Our Heroes

After missing so much recognition, it is the least we can do to lift up the U.S. Merchant Marines that we know. We are proud to have secured local memorials for Merchant Marines in various locations like parks and public areas. AMMV also played an integral part in highlighting the service and accomplishments of the U.S. Merchant Marines at the National WWII Memorial.

We continue these efforts to distinguish our members with conventions and events held in their honor to showcase the amazing work they did for the United States. Our country’s progress is due to the sacrifices of those who are able to place the interests of others ahead of their own. During our country’s most trying times, we’ve seen champions step up to the plate, roll up their sleeves, and do whatever it takes to conquer the obstacles in their way.
