On Veterans Day 2011, the AVHC hosted a Community Covenant signing ceremony at the historic Catholic Chapel on the Dayton VAMC campus. This Covenant is document wherein Greene and Montgomery County leadership, including County Commissions, County VSO organizations, the National Guard, local colleges and universities, and the VA, committed their organizations to initiatives, which support military service members and their families. To recognize these organizations for their support, Judge Walter Rice, President of the AVHC Board of Trustees, and AF BGen (ret) Dennis Samic, presented framed copies of the Covenant to the two County Commissions and VSO Boards at their regularly scheduled meetings this summer.
