Hurricane Irma

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by hurricane Irma especially those in the Caribbean, Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.

The whole state of Florida has been declared a Major Disaster area.
Those needing assistance please contact FEMA.
This is a great website to apply for assistance, especially for those hardest hit.
You can apply for lender forbearance which will grant you 3 MONTHS OF NO MORTGAGE PAYMENTS with the 3 months being added to the backend of your loan. Check the map and website by clicking the FEMA link above.

The SAMVOUSA head office which recently moved to Florida has no current phone service or internet.
Cell service is up but unstable and erratic for both voice calls and data.

We ask members to please reach out to others and check on their well being and if possible provide assistance.

Thank you from all at SAMVOUSA and SAMVOINT.

Chairman SAMVOUSA

Boshoed Dag 2017

Boshoed day is on the 26th August

This day in 1966 – 51 years ago, was the recognised start of the South African Border War, which lasted 23 years, 6 months, 3 weeks and 2 days.
Please remember the 2,280 members of the SADF that gave their lives in service of their country during this period. Of these 776 were killed in action.

Wear something SADF related on the day.
Can be anything from your boshoed, beret, SAMVOINT badge, Balkie, etc.
Take a selfie and share/post photos on either Facebook or email to SAMVOUSA to share on the SAMVOUSA/SAMVOINT website.

Create awareness of our veterans and especially to honour those who made the supreme sacrifice.
Lest we Forget
