About Chapter 311

Chapter 311, Vietnam Veterans of America was formed in late 1986.   Our purpose in forming this organization was to provide the camaraderie that we felt in the Chicago parade to local Vietnam veterans and to become part of a national organization whose goals meet our special needs.
Chapter 311 continues to meet the needs and wants of our veterans and have continued to keep the family spirit we all experiences with our “brothers and sisters” in Vietnam.   Today we work together to provide help for veterans, our communities and our families.   We provide services to the community, and help for all veterans and many family social events.
