The other day I had an interesting discussion with a C/1/82 vet from '68 about what organizations we belonged to and were active with. He is actively involved with the VFW and the VVA while I am the current local Post and District Commander for AMVETS. I have long advocated that veterans must be active in some way because our government and non-veteran citizens don't really understand our particular problems and needs and will always be more concerned with general issues over veteran related ones. The question for discussion here is; Are you involved with vetran organizations, Are you active in them, to which organization do you belong to and why?

I belong to the 31st Infantry Association, the 196th Infantry Association and the Americal Division Veterans Association. I attended a startup meeting of the Order of the CIB at Ft Lewis a few years back and took a pass on it. Their orientation was too much towards drinking to suit me.

I have belonged to the American Legion Post 489 in Peck, MI. for 40 yrs. and am the membership chairman for the Legion Riders of that Post . I also am a Life Member of the Americal Div. Veterans Assn. , The DAV , and the VVA . I tried to join the VFW when I returned home but they weren't interested in Vietnam veterans at that time and have never had an interest joining that organization since .
