2021 American GI Forum National Conference


We counted down the seconds for 2020 to end so we could start a new year fresh and with a better sense of normalcy. Now, however, we are well into 2021, and things have not changed all that much. We still face the reality of in-person events being delayed or cancelled, but we are tired of  boring hybrid events and we know that this makes this conference more challenging for attendees while sponsors continue to need more connection points and return on their sponsorship investments. This is why this 2021 Conference has to be in-person and successful. It is up to us to help make this a success by attending and participating.

Private Marcelino Serna 

The American GI Forum is very proud to be leading the National effort with the wonderful help of many other organizations and individuals to right a historical wrong and hopefully get the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously awarded to Private Marcelino Serna, our World War I hero. We salute our fellow veteran and American GI Forum member, Texas State Senator Cesar Blanco for nominating Private Marcelino Serna for the prestigious Texas Legislative Medal of Honor posthumously. Si Se Puede!
