Providing Support to Veterans and Their Families Through Programs, Projects, and Education
Our mission is to support the overall goals of the Vietnam Veterans of America organization. These goals are to promote and support the full range of issues important to Vietnam veterans, to create a new identity for this generation of veterans and to change public perception of Vietnam veterans.
Specifically, our Chapter will seek to assist veterans who are disabled or are in need of assistance, as well as to provide help for their families. This assistance may be in the following areas;
1. Review proposed federal, state or local legislation rules or regulations that may affect the social, economic, educational or physical welfare of all veterans and their families.
2. To act as an informational resource center to service all veterans with information regarding health care, benefits, employment and training, monetary assistance and other veterans issues.
3. To participate in and support local community activities and to provide an open dialogue regarding the Vietnam War with students and the general public.
