Chapter 1125, very active within the local community, serves veterans from Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach and the surrounding areas. In 2018 members awarded six scholarships to local high schools and college students, and supported the Homeless Veteran\’s Program with their Vietnam Veterans Helping All Veterans Program. The chapter also works closely with the State Veterans Home in Pembroke Pines, the West Palm Beach VA Hospital and numerous volunteer organizations.
VVA is a national non-profit corporation founded in the United States that is committed to serving the needs of all veterans. It is funded without any contribution from any branch of government. VVA is the only such organization chartered by the United States Congress and dedicated to Vietnam veterans and their families. Its founding principle is \\”Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.”
VVA’s 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.
