AMERI*CON was conceived around a fire pit in Afghanistan and established in August, 2015.

AMERI*CON is a non-profit veteran owned and operated organization dedicated to providing a wide range of support, camaraderie, aid and entertainment to the service community through a massive celebratory convention.

AMERI*CON was established to ensure every service member receives the support they need, the opportunities they deserve, entertainment they can enjoy, and of course a measure of thanks and appreciation from the community they have sacrificed for. We recognize all those who swore an oath in service to our nation are the building blocks of our collective freedom, and way of life. It’s only right, we celebrate that freedom and provide an entertaining and supportive environment where those patriots can reflect on what they have fought to protect.

Ameri-Con Freedom Forward

Less than 1% of the population of the United States of America currently serve in our active military. The number of people that served and retired from both the military and local, state, or federal law enforcement are so small that no statistics are available… In the Case of Mr. Pedro Solis our country was lucky enough to have a man who would give more than 20 years to both his country and his community as a Vietnam and Desert Storm Veteran and a police officer. On the morning of 13NOV18, after waking up early in the morning and relaxing in his recliner, researching for our family tree, as he liked to do, Pete passed away peacefully, and quietly in his home in Cave Creek, Arizona. The percentage of Americans who can raise their hand and say they are a veteran, a retired combat veteran, and a retired police officer, is incredibly small. However, Pete could… He’s literally a 1 in a 100 million kind of guy … He epitomized and demonstrated on a daily basis what it means to be a good American, a good father, a good husband, a good friend, and a good mentor. Today we are faced with an incredibly difficult task; we are forced to follow in this man’s footsteps and attempt to live by the example he set. Regardless of how difficult our job will be, trying to live as he did, we know it is possible; because he did. Even if the odds are 1 in a 100 million, we know there’s still a chance, and we owe it to him to do our best to live up to the lofty goals and achievements he set. Thank you for your service. Godspeed Pete! ... See MoreSee Less

We regret to inform our fellow service members, friends, and patriots that we have to cancel this year’s convention as a result of a series of medical events, including a death in the family. We’re continuing to make final arrangements and comforting family members during these difficult times. While recent events are preventing us from hosting our annual Ameri-Con Freedom Forward Convention, rest assured we will be gathered around our Fire Pit next year, celebrating our nation’s heroes. Like many of our brothers and sisters who have lost teammates and family members, we’re taking a knee, and focusing on consoling and enduring this hardship together. As we reaffirm our commitment to our family and friends by embracing the grieving process, concentrating on the positive times, sharing stories, and honoring their memory, we’ll also move forward in a way that will make them proud. Thank you for your service, thank for your camaraderie, and thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Freedom Forward!
