VVA is a "home of our own" -- a community of fellowship with people who share your experiences, needs, and hopes for the future.
Welcome Home, and to the Idaho Falls and surrounding area VVA website. It is our goal to provide an online source of information, helpful links to services and benefits and other veteran service organizations and keep you informed of our local activities. Our aim as well, is to provide some accurate history concerning the Vietnam War.
Chapter 972 as with the other 616 VVA chapters offer fellowship, opportunities to help fellow veterans, and provide community service.
Be as active as your time, talents, and interests allow. Or simply be a proud member of VVA, knowing that your membership helps VVA work for you and your fellow Vietnam veterans.
The VVA national organization keeps less than half of your membership dues. The rest stays at the state and local level to support programs and services for veterans and their families.
Membership includes a subscription to our award-winning newspaper, The VVA Veteran, bringing you updates on issues and legislation affecting veterans, as well as unique articles on the people, places, and history of the Vietnam experience.
