The Association of Defense Communities recently won a Silver TRENDY Award for “Best Video” at the 43rd Annual Salute to Association Excellence.

The award-winning video was titled “Vets Supporting Vets in the Antelope Valley,” recognizing organizations in the California region that was one of 2022’s Great American Defense Communities, an ADC program sponsored by USAA. The story highlighted Vets 4 Veterans and Coffee4Vets, two grassroots organizations supporting veterans in the community.

“We are proud of our communication and outreach teams who see great things happening in military communities across the country and look for the best ways to share those stories,” said Tim Ford, the CEO of ADC. “ADC and our nation are full of stories from service members, military families, veterans and community supporters that we have the honor of sharing with others. We will keep doing that.”

The video was produced and written by Grace Marvin, ADC’s director of communications. Chris Wright of Optix Creative was the director of photography and editor.
