  • 06/17/2015 - Run for a Vet to benefit VVA
    The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913 is hosting its first 5k run and half-marathon at 7 a.m. June 13. Public Relations Chairman Bob Sarver said event is the chapters trial. If its successful, well continue to do it, Sarver said. The idea of a 5k and half-marathon sparked from the popularity events such as this have had, Sarver said. It seems to be very popular, Sarver said. We just felt it was a good way to raise some more funds. In addition to its veterans assistance, the VVA Ch. 913 also hopes to expand its scholarship program, Sarver said. Its harder to fund all of that, so we have to raise some more funds, Sarver said. Were going into it that whatever we produce is going to be a profit for our organization. The events theme is Run For A Vet, Sarver said. If a runner or walker knows of a veteran theyd like to participate for, Sarver said they may do so. And, even if they dont know of a veteran, participants may choose a name off the VVA Ch. 913 member list, he said. Its going to be a fun one, I think, Sarver said. The cost is $25 for the 5k and $35 for the half-marathon. For more information contact Race Directors Joy Penrod, 417-263-0413 or Denise Greeno at 417-263-0412.

VVA is also committed to veterans of all conflicts and feels a special affinity for our veterans returning from Iraq , Afghanistan and the Global War on Terrorism.

VetsConnect funds projects in support of today's veterans and current military, and will utilize the proven resources of VVA to provide services, assistance, advice and support directly to those who served on active duty after September 11, 2001 and/or their families

Our Mission

Our mission remains true to the founding principles of the Vietnam Veterans of America, vowing that:
