Memorial Committee
On Monday, July 18, 2022, a small but dedicated group consisting of a
former VVA 1106 Chapter President, a Chaplin and three current Board
Members met and began to roll out what will be known as “The
Memorial Committee”. This brainchild came to be born out of necessity! Far too many of us Veteran’s, families and friends have little or no idea of the amount of time and required paperwork that must be completed when a Veteran dies and the many small but important steps that 

follow.
Our Mission
To lessen the amount of time and assist with the required paperwork to
properly handle the ‘ins and outs’ of a hero’s death. To provide ample
contact information during this emotional period.
