Associates of the Vietnam Veterans of America

When the last Vietnam Veteran passes on The Vietnam Veterans of America's charter will cease to exist. The Associates of the Vietnam Veterans of America, (AVVA) was chartered to carry on our memories and issues important to us. The AVVA's membership consists of Family and friends of Vietnam Veterans. Vietnam Veterans are also allowed to join the AVVA as a non-voting member. The AVVA has it's own agenda and projects independent of the VVA and are responsible for their own funding.
