Veterans' Court Presentation

Recognizing that all Vietnam Veterans and Vietnam Era Veterans are growing older, our national and state officials are trying to address the legacy of our organization. We are unlike some veterans organizations such as the American Legion or VFW in that our organization was created and focused on just that one war. Accordingly, they have asked us to poll our members to better understand our preferences.
There are three major options:
1. Last Man Standing Option the organization would be disbanded when the membership level reaches a low, non-sustainable level.
2. Continued Legacy Option by opening up the membership to other veterans, the VVA's legacy of "Never Again Will One Generation of Veterans Abandon Another" be continued into the future.
3. Seek to merge the VVA with some other Veterans organization (e.g. VFW, Legion, etc.)
