VVA and Cochise County VVA
The mission of Cochise County Chapter falls in line with the VVA. We are committed to work with Vietnam era veterans to assist them with issues unique to the Vietnam veteran. Advocacy of veteran issues is our priority and include government accounting of POW/MIA's, Agent Orange issues, veterans rights, benefits, and dignity. We believe in our creed:
“Never again will one generation of veterans leave another behind”
We will work closely with all communities within the county and provide assistance to veterans through programs within VVA and our chapter.
Our chapter presently consists of four officers, President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. We have a board of directors, and representation on the Arizona state council. We are organized under the national constitution and by-laws of Vietnam Veterans of America. No matter where in Cochise County Veterans and their families live, we strive to serve Veterans. Vietnam Veterans, if you live in Sierra Vista, Huachuca City, Bisbee, Tombstone, Hereford, Palominos, Douglas, Wilcox, Sonoita, Benson or anywhere in between, please join us!
Membership is open to U.S. armed force veterans who served on active duty (for other than training purposes) in the Republic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975, or in any duty location between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975. To join Vietnam Veterans of America click here.
