OUR MISSION:
The Friends of American Veterans is a group of patriotic Americans made up of Los Altos Rotary Club Members, the Veterans Resource Center at Foothill College, educators, community members, donors and others who appreciate the commitment and sacrifice of our military.

 
Our mission is to provide assistance to returning Veterans in their challenges of reentry into society after service to our country.


WHAT WE ARE DOING:
The Los Altos Rotary Veterans Support Committee and Veterans Resource Center at Foothill College have created the Captain Matt Manoukian, USMC, Memorial Scholarship Fund for deserving Veterans.  Captain Manoukian was killed in Afghanistan in August 2012.  He received many awards of valor including two Purple Hearts. 


Foothill College is committed to ensuring that veterans of all abilities experience a level playing field as they return to college. This includes adequate access to courses, instructional equipment, counseling, tutoring and other critical student support services. Combined with strong academics, a comprehensive suite of student support services is essential to help veterans succeed in college, and achieve their academic and career goals.  The Veterans Support Committee provides mentoring sessions, job exposure, guidance for Veteran benefits & legal affairs and fund raising for scholarships.
