The Vietnam Veterans of America continues to extend its programs and assistance to veterans all across Louisiana. The VVA of Louisiana is constantly finding new ways to provide much needed support to veterans in need. They focus on many different issues that affect our nation’s veterans. With a focus on seeking full access to quality health care for veterans, the VVA of Louisiana works towards identifying the full range of disabling injuries and health issues incurred during military service. Each and every VVA chapter in Louisiana plays a key role in carrying out the goals of the VVA. Chapter 141 of Acadiana sponsored the Memorial Day ceremony in Lafayette. The inspiring event paid tribute to those who have given their lives fighting for freedom. Chapter 141 also focuses on their Operation Unknown Soldier project that acknowledges the value and dignity of our veterans lives and shows homeless veterans and those who feel forgotten that the community cares for them. Chapter 630 of Houma works with local restaurants to hold veterans appreciation nights, where all veterans eat for free. Chapter 697 of St. Tammany focuses on honoring the nine million Vietnam era veterans at their Vietnam Veteran Monument dedication events. The Louisiana VVA also works with the community to drive support for veterans. They recently recognized two Louisiana teachers for their outstanding efforts to promote their students education and awareness of American wars and the veterans who fought to protect this nation.

The VVA in Louisiana continues to serve our communities and drive support for all veterans including the next generation of America’s soldiers. Please schedule a free donation pickup today and help the Vietnam Veterans of America continue their amazing causes.
