Associates of Vietnam Veterans
Associates of Vietnam Veterans of
America is a national, nonprofit membership and service organization dedicated
to advancing the full range of issues affecting Vietnam veterans, their
families, and their communities. Our members are families,
friends, and supporters of Vietnam veterans, as well as Vietnam veterans and
veterans of other eras. AVVA is affiliated with Vietnam Veterans of America, the
nation's leading Vietnam veterans organization. Together, we work to ensure that
Vietnam veterans get the honor, respect, and benefits they deserve. AVVA brings
an additional focus on those who stayed behind when our men and women in uniform
answered the call to service. This is the extended family that makes up the
Vietnam experience—the parents, spouses, children, friends, and communities of
AVVA is the place for this extended
family to join together for action, healing, reconciliation, mutual support, and
fellowship. AVVA members can affiliate with any of Pennsylvania VVA's 28 chapters, joining
in outreach and assistance to veterans, legislative action, community service,
and social activities.

"Caring For Our Vietnam Veterans' Families"
PA AVVA feels strongly that it is
important to show our support, care and concern to those who have
experienced the loss of their spouse, partner or significant other. Some
have been widowed due to their spouse dying from Agent Orange related
diseases or other health related conditions. Our Condolence
Committee will reach out to these newly widowed women and men with a
letter of care, an Agent Orange Remembrance pin and information that the
newly widowed person can use. If you know of someone that has just
lost their loved one and needs to be reached out to, please email us at
