Never Again will one Generation of Veterans abandon another

Vietnam Veterans of American Chapter 1030 Cumming Ga

Reflection
Message from President

Vietnam Veterans Chapter 1030 of Cumming, Georgia was established and chartered on September 9, 2009 when 27 individuals petitioned the National VVA to officially become a Chapter.  The goal then, as it is now, is to assist veterans in need and to support various community projects.

We support various programs by raising funds through donations and selling raffle tickets.  You may see us at various locations accepting donations and selling raffle tickets where permitted.  We hold the drawing for the raffle items at end of the Veterans Day Memorial in Cumming, Georgia.  We also have a second Raffle fund raiser from December to March. We support The Place of Forsyth by providing food on Easter, 4th of July and Thanksgiving.  Various other monetary support is provided to the Place for Christmas.  We also volunteer to help the USO at the Hartfield Jackson airport four times a year and our newest project is to meet with Veterans at the VA nursing home where many of the patients seldom have visitors.

 

Socially, we get together each Fridays at the Station House in Cumming for breakfast.  There are two groups that meet, one at 7 am and the other is at 10 am.  We try to meet every other month with our spouses for lunch at the Golden Corral in Cumming.  

 

You may have notice Vietnam era veterans wearing red shirts on Friday.  This is a symbolic meaning that we will never forget our service members serving overseas as well as our POW's and MIA's veterans of all wars.  When you hear our greeting "Welcome Home," it's a greeting many of us never received upon returning from our tour of duty in Vietnam.  It's another way of saving "Thank you for your service to our country."

If you qualify for membership and would like to become a part of our organization, we invite you to complete an application and submit your DD214 take advantage of our Veterans Special and pay a one-time fee of $25.  This special price will be available until the end of May.  After that, the cost to join will be a one-time fee of $50.  You can download a form by clicking on the appropriate button below.

If you are a Vietnam Era Veteran and reading this now, "Welcome Home."
