AVAST Color Guard... Making a Difference

The Avast (Assisting Veterans of America Support Team) Color Guard was started in March of 2012. Our purpose was to raise awareness, hope and inspiration for wounded Veterans and a way for us to give back to all the People who supported us.

The Color Guard is made up from local Veterans of the Tampa area, who served in different branches of the military. Some of them are combat wounded and are Purple Heart recipients, some have recently returned from deployment and others are retired Military.

All served this country proudly.

                                                              Veterans helping veterans...  

Look into the faces of our member veterans and allow them into your heart.  They have given dearly of themselves to help others.  It is time to show our gratitude and return the gift...donate now!

Help Support AVAST!

Every bit helps!
