WAMIC proudly supports our brave men and women who serve in the Armed Forces. Each year at our Annual Convention, our Spouse/Guests assembled care packages for our troops overseas. We are asking our Spouse/Guests to assemble care packages again at our 2021 Convention. If you would like to donate funds to pay for postage and buy supplies, click Donate today.
