About the VVAA

The Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia (VVAA) was formed in late 1979, principally out of concern/frustration that health issues relating to the use of chemicals (ie Agent Orange) and Post Traumatic Stress were not being adequately addressed.


The VVAA represents Vietnam Veterans and their families across Australia on issues arising from the Vietnam War and provides an ongoing  Welfare service to those in need of assistance.

The Victorian Branch of the VVAA operated as a State Branch for the first 10 or so years. When significant growth in membership occurred in the early 1990s, State Sub-branches were established  throughout Victoria.

Honour the dead, but fight like hell for the living
