Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 137 in Dallas, VVA137 for short, is the first and largest chapter in the State of Texas. We just celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2014 and we’re proud that over 85% of donations to our organization go directly to the vets we are trying to help.

From the President

Fellow VVA137 members ... 

     Here we go guys, we are finally cleared to have our meeting.  It will be this coming Saturday, 20 June, 2020.  So here we go!  Board meeting (preferably at 9:00 am) and the membership meeting at 10:00 am.

We are assuming that we will be inside the Star Venue, as normal, and have a set-up arranged so social distancing will be observed.  So, we will have taken care of our members best we know how.

     At this meeting we will have a number of agenda items to catch up with our chapter business:
Gun raffle drawing, Scholarship approval(s), and our Elections for sure, and any other ones that the Secretary will be adding for the good of the order.
     We hope that each of our members is safe and sound and enjoyed their Memorial Day holiday.   We hope to see all of you at the meeting! 

     Remember, that all who are eligible and are willing to take on a position on the board need to have an affidavit to that effect registered with Robert Young, our Chair of the Election Committee.  This might be done before the elections at the meeting.

      May God continue to bless you and the United States of America.
