Goals and Objectives:
We stand with and support our national organization, Vietnam Veterans of America.
We honor the memories of our brothers-in-arms who have fallen or remain missing.
We welcome at our ampfire all those currently serving as well as all veterans of the United States military and recognize them as our brothers.
We assist through our charity and our energy those of our ranks that suffer from residual problems resulted from their military service.
We are pro-active in our community and we strive to make a positive difference where we can.
And lastly, we will continue to earn respect for our service to our country and will strive to rehabilitate the media's image of Vietanam Veterans. We served with honor then and we continue now in service to America.
