Membership is open to U.S. military veterans who served on active duty (for other than training purposes) in Vietnam between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975, or in any duty location between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975.
Be as active as your time, talents and interests allow. Or simply be a proud member of VVA, knowing that your membership helps VVA work for you and your fellow Vietnam veterans. The VVA national organization keeps less than half of your membership dues. The rest stays at the state and local level to support programs and services for veterans and their families.
With over 75,000 members, VVA provides a community of fellowship with people who share your experiences, needs and hopes for the future.

What if I don’t meet VVA requirements for membership?
If you don’t meet the regular membership requirements, you can join Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America (AVVA). AVVA members include families, friends and supporters of Vietnam veterans, veterans from before and after the Vietnam era, as well as Vietnam veterans. VVA members can have dual membership in AVVA as non-voting AVVA members.
