In January 1978, a group of fifteen Vietnam veteran advocates got together in Washington, D.C., and began the organization that became Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). VVA today is the only congressionally chartered national Vietnam veterans service organization. Over the years, VVA has been the primary organization insisting that the U.S. Government hold up its obligation to all veterans.
The VVA is a respected charity that gives aid to all of America’s veterans, not just those of a particular age group or war.
