"Tomorrow belong to those who prepare for it today" ― African Proverb




Vietnam Veterans of America has established four levels for the management and support for it's
80,000 + members. The first level is the National Organization. National VVA provides the primary direction for all units of Vietnam Veterans of America. It's policies and constitution are the governing body. 

The next level is VVA Regional Districts. There are currently nine districts. The role 
and responsibility of each district is to oversee and coordinate the activities and State Councils
within that district. (Florida is a part of District 4, headed by Craig Tonjes). 

The next level is state council. Here in Florida, our governing body is the Vietnam Veterans of America Florida State Council. The volunteer leadership of the Florida State Council can be viewed at the VVA FSC Leadership - CLICK HERE. 

The final level is the individual Chapters. The individual chapters  are the heartbeat of the organization. It is they who are responsible to provide the service to other veterans and their community.

The Florida State Council consists of the elected officers, appointed committee chairs and an
elected delegate from each chapter. In addition to committee chairs, the President of the Florida
State Council, can and does appoint other individuals to assist the state council including a
webmaster, chaplain, photographer, etc.
