James Maddox

At-Large Director

James Maddox is a life member of Vietnam Veterans of America and the Montford Point Marine Association. He is also a member of the American Legion Post 218 in Pasadena and the National Association of Black Veterans (NABVETS). He has been a member of VVA since 1998. He has an extensive background in marketing and underwriting commercial insurance, specializing in liability coverage for technology and life-science firms. In May 2016, he graduated from the University of Southern California School of Social Work, with a Master of Social Work degree.

 

Maddox began his involvement with VVA in 1999, the year that the National Convention was held in Anaheim, California. He found that the VVA approach to issues was appealing. They endorse candidate’s only policies not politicians. At the conclusion of the convention, he was asked to become a member of the National Public Affairs Committee.

 

He became a contributor to the National Public Affairs Committee and has become a member who has pushed for outreach and expanding the relationships that VVA has with a variety of organizations, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

 

As a member of VVA Chapter 446, Maddox has held a number of positions, including president, vice president, and currently, board member. He has worked with VVA Chapter 446 in its efforts to expand outreach to non-veteran communities. He was instrumental in creating a five-year relationship with the Real Men Cook Foundation and the VVA California State Council. The relationship has evolved to the current nine-year relationship with Trinity Baptist Church and its annual Prostate Cancer Screening on Veterans Day.

 

James has assisted the Chapter’s outreach to the seven congressional representatives where members of VVA Chapter 446 live. He helps to coordinate the quarterly meeting with VVA Chapter 446 and their Congressional Delegation.

 

He truly believes in the motto of Vietnam Veterans of America, “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.”
