AMVETS from our post testified before the Colorado General Assembly State and Military of Veterans Affairs on the issue of veteran homelessness


Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee . . .

Welcome to Captain Russell B. Rippetoe Amvets Post 6 in Broomfield Colorado. We are located on Old Wadsworth Blvd., just south of 120th Ave., at the Broomfield VFW Post 9565.

We here at Captain Russell B. Rippetoe AMVETS Post 6, invite you to join us in our commitments to both veterans service and community service. We rely on the support of our membership to achieve our community service goals through promoting volunteerism, while the AMVETS Organization uses its legislative efforts on Capitol Hill to help ensure and improve veterans benefits for those who have served honorably. While you are here, we also want you to learn a little about Captain Russell B. Rippetoe, the soldier whose name proudly graces our Post.


Our general membership meeting is the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7:00PM. The future of your post is in your hands. Your attendance is very much needed, and appreciated.
