MOTTO: "Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another"


To promote and enforce the principles and policies of the Vietnam Veterans of America, as set forth in the
VVA constitution”

“To act as a conduit to establish additional chapters within Colorado”

“To support existing chapters in their efforts to promote the welfare of all veterans and their families”

“To develop positive relationships within the local community, and participate in veteran community events”

(To be read at the start of each State Council meeting)

WE, the veterans who served during the Vietnam War, who embraced through sacrifice and service to our country the most fundamental and cherished bonds of our democracy, reaffirm that commitment to spirit and ideals, accepting it as the solemn responsibility of our survival, to bear the burden of what has been, so that tragedy once endured can never be forgotten.


And so do we resolve that the true measure of our worth as citizens, as veterans, and as patriots be found in our willingness to draw from and abide by these strengths and convictions born of heritage and experience.
