Why Join AVVA?


Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America (AVVA) is a unique organization, pulling together Veterans, their families, their friends, and people who support their issues into one united group.

AVVA is NOT an auxiliary. It is a Nonprofit Veteran support organization. The most significant advantage we have is that we are made up of Veterans and non-veterans from all walks of life; working together for common goals. Because of our status, Congress listens to our individual voices regarding pending or suggested legislation, when we walk into our representative or senator's office to speak out.

AVVA was born out of people who wanted to support the actions and causes of the Vietnam Veterans of America, whose main motto is: "Never again will one generation of Veterans abandon another". We are dedicated to keeping this motto alive in the future. AVVA members include Veterans from all eras, military personnel and their families, and community members who want to help support the needs and issues of all Veterans. In short, AVVA is anyone and everyone who wishes to work towards these goals.

Being a member of the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America gives you the fellowship in which to accomplish all manner of tasks and programs that support the needs of our nation's Veterans.

If you look at our programs (links in menu above) you will see that AVVA is hard at work, helping to improve the circumstance of Veterans and their families in both large and small ways. Our VISTA Program encourages 'giving back' to local communities and tracks the 1000's of hours of Volunteer work by our members throughout the country; Paper Safes give Veterans a means of making life less stressful for their family and friends in a time when things can be very chaotic, again, at no cost to the Veteran. AVVA gives grants to organizations helping homeless Veterans and other Veteran causes, and supports educational programs regarding the effects of PTSD, Survivor Benefits, as well as Agent Orange and other toxins.

When you join AVVA you join a family that stretches across this country, whose common goal is to help keep this nation's promises to all our Veterans.
