Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) Northern Utah, Ogden Chapter 1079, is officially nationally chartered and is one of only two VVA chapters in Utah. We are proudly Utah's newest veterans' organization. We have many community activities planned and are actively recruiting members and associates. We welcome all Vietnam-era veterans into our organization, whether they served in country or not.
Our auxiliary (associates) are family, friends, veterans who don't qualify for VVA but support Vietnam veterans, and members of the community who want to be part of an active veterans organization, an organization that serves all veterans of peace time and war.
On November 9, we will proudly be an entry in the Ogden Veterans Parade. We invite all Vietnam-era veterans, their family members and supporters, to join us as we walk in this parade. Come and walk with us as we honor those who are with us and those who didn't make it home. We are entry number 13.
To all Vietnam veterans we say "welcome home brothers and sisters." To all veterans, "Thank you for your service."
This week we ask everyone to seek out veterans and tell each one, "Thank you for your service."
In today's atmosphere of chaotic politics, the one thing you can count on is the service of all veterans, each man and woman who once served and those serving today, the best militaries in the world. Semper Fi.
Vietnam veteran, Marine Corps.
President, Vietnam Veterans of America
