Membership in VVA is the Right Choice
VVA is a "home of our own" -- a community of fellowship with people who share your experiences, needs, and hopes for the future.
Join one of our 617 chapters for fellowship, volunteer opportunities, and community service.
Be as active as your time, talents, and interests allow. Or simply be a proud member of VVA, knowing that your membership helps VVA work for you and your fellow Vietnam veterans.
The VVA national organization keeps less than half of your membership dues. The rest stays at the state and local level to support programs and services for veterans and their families.
Membership includes a subscription to our award-winning newspaper, The VVA Veteran, bringing you updates on issues and legislation affecting veterans, as well as unique articles on the people, places, and history of the Vietnam experience.
How to Join
Membership is open to U.S. armed forces veterans who served on active duty (for other than training purposes) in the Republic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961, and May 7, 1975, or in any duty location between August 5, 1964, and May 7, 1975.
To join, print a Membership Application. Please include a copy of your DD-214 with your membership application.
Families, friends, supporters, and veterans of other eras can join the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America and receive the same benefits.
