Vietnam Veterans of America to Coordinate Relief Effort for Hurricane Katrina

WASHINGTON– Vietnam Veterans of America National President John Rowan is calling on the organization’s state councils, chapters, and members from across the nation to come to the aid of the millions of Americans affected by Hurricane Katrina.

“Vietnam Veterans of America-and our affiliated organization, Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America-can and will come together to help our fellow citizens in Louisiana and Mississippi get through this horrendous natural disaster,” Rowan said.

Rowan announced that the VVA relief effort will be coordinated by the organization’s Florida State Council. “The excellent job the Florida State Council did during the disastrous Florida hurricanes in 2004 makes our members in Florida ideally suited to coordinate this relief effort,” Rowan said…


Contributions will be used to purchase basic supplies, such as bottled water, food, and other necessities for hundreds of thousands of those who have been affected by the hurricane. Checks should be made out to “VVA Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.” Send the checks to Vietnam Veterans of America, Attn: VVA Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund, 8605 Cameron Street, Ste. 400, Silver Spring, Maryland 20910.

“This unfortunate tragedy has affected the lives of so many,” Rowan said. “As in the past, I know that our VVA and AVVA members will step up during this time of need. There is much work ahead for all of us as we work together to overcome this American tsunami.”
