Who Is AVVA?
Associates of Vietnam Veterans
of America (AVVA) is a unique organization, pulling together
Veterans and people who support their issues into one united
"Together Always" is the motto of this organization.
AVVA is NOT an auxiliary. It
is a C4 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 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".
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
