Welcome to the Plymouth-Canton, MI Chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA)! The Vietnam Veterans of America was founded in 1978 and is the only National Vietnam Veterans Organization congressionally chartered and exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-Era Veterans and their families. Our founding principle is "Never Again Will One Generation Of Veterans Abandon Another." VVA's goals are "To promote and support the full range of issues important to Vietnam-Era Veterans, to create a new identity for this generation of veterans, and to change public perception of Vietnam-Era Veterans." Our Chapter activities benefit the Communities of Plymouth and Canton Michigan as well as Wayne County and these activities help to create a positive public perception of Vietnam-Era Veterans. Visit the National VVA Website or the National AVVA (Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America) Website when you have a chance.
