“NEVER AGAIN will one generation of veterans abandon another.”

Welcome to VVA Chapter 805 in Roseburg, Oregon.

Founded in 1978, Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) is the only national Vietnam veterans organization congressionally chartered and exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-era veterans and their families. Chapter 805 in Roseburg, Oregon is one of over 500 chapters throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam and the Republic of the Philippines.


Membership in the Vietnam Veterans of America is open to U.S. armed forces veterans who served on active duty (for other than training purposes) in the Republic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975, or in any duty location between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975.

We built and maintain for display the Traveling Wall of Oregon Veterans, shown at many community events throughout Douglas County. We provide the Honor Guard during final services at Veterans funerals. In the past we donated to Umpqua Community College through scholarships and made toy donations to children that might not otherwise receive gifts at Christmas. This year we gave scholarships to 13 high school seniors.
