The Vietnam Veteran Wives (VVW) organization could not exist without our members and sponsors. While many excellent service organizations exist to help veterans, very few extend their focus to helping veterans and their families in rural America where veterans services are obsolete.
Since our founding in 1996, we have helped thousands of veterans from many wars, as well as their spouses, and children, to re-establish their lives following combat service. Now, our nation is facing a huge influx of new veterans who have served in Iraq & Afghanistan. To answer that need, we must expand our services and our reach. We cannot do the work that needs to be done without your help.
All memberships and donations are tax deductible as VVW is a 501 (c) 19 Non-Profit Organization. 100% of all contibutions from both memberships and donations go directly to helping veterans and their families. Everyone who volunteers for VVW and the Ferry County Mountain Veterans Center are just that...Volunteers who tirelessly give their time freely to help our nations heroes and their families. Or overhead costs for the website and Veterans Center are kept as low as possible however we still have to keep the power on, The Vet Center open. As such we do have to cover the costs are for our Electricity, property taxes and liability insurance. Oh yea and don't foegt the coffee!
Vietnam Veteran Wives is a Veterans Service Organization (VSO) which offers counseling and help with VA (Veterans Administration) claims, DIC (dependency and indemnity compensation) filings, Chapter 35 benefit filings, burial benefits, and more. We also help veterans and their families by speaking to politicians, lawmakers, and others about policies and practices that effect the veteran population. In short, we are an organization committed to helping our nation’s heroes get and maintain the benefits they deserve. These services are available to all veterans, whether or not they choose to join the VVW.
VVW also sponsors an annual Memorial Day event each year we call "Let Freedom Ring". This event provides an oppertunity for the community, both Veteran and Civilian, to come together in one location to see what we can do for them as a service organization. It's also a time for those who are just wanting some social outlet as we provide live music, poetry readings, Native American ceremonies and great food. Some of our local politicians even take the time to come out a talk with those in attendance. Living in the real rural areas we have here in America can be lonely at times and events such as "Let Freedom Ring" are a wonderful outlet for the Veterans and their families.
VVW Membership is for Combat Veterans (must verify service) and their spouses. We recognize that Service Connected Disabilities such as PTSD, Agent Orange exposure and Gulf War Illness, not only impact the Veteran, but the entire family.
As a member, you will receive a membership card, ongoing updates & information, as well as the opportunity to interact with other veterans, spouses, and family members who are facing similar challenges. Membership is $20.00 a year. A copy of the veteran’s DD-214 or other proof of service is required.
