Associates of the Vietnam Veterans of America (AVVA)

Established in 1991, Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America (AVVA) was created by those who wanted to support the goals of the Vietnam Veterans of America. AVVA is a unique organization, pulling together Veterans and people who support their issues into one united group. "Together Always" is the motto of this organization.

AVVA is NOT an auxiliary. It is a C3 Nonprofit Veterans Service 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, we are allowed to lobby Congress regarding pending or suggested legislation, and we often do.

AVVA is made up of members who are Veterans from all eras, military personnel and their families, families and friends of Vietnam Veterans, 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.
