What's the Chapter up to?

 “WELCOME HOME!” Chapter 1036 is located in the active adult community of “The Villages,” which is in central Florida. The Villages is one of the fastest growing communities in Florida and is spread over three counties: Lake, Sumter and Marion with a population of over 110,000 people. It is estimated that over 17,000 veterans are living here. (continue reading)

On Monday, June 5, 2017 about 20-23 members decided to have lunch at the PDQ restaurant. The owners of PDQ are Tom & Jennifer (former USMC Veteran). PDQ is located over on CR 466A (next to McDonalds.) This establishment has some of the finest employees that we have seen around The Villages. We think it is because the owners know how to treat their employees and the employees in turn show their respect for Tom & Jennifer by giving the best service one could ask for. A side note, every first Monday of the month the owners display the missing man (POW/MIA) table with a letter laid on top explaining what each item displayed represents. So come by and have a great meal served by a great staff and support a Veteran owned business.
After all, "We take care of our own when called upon."

We would like to thank the organizers, players, volunteers and guest that were instrumental in making sure The Vietnam Veterans of America Annual Golf Tournament was such a success. We could not have done it without everyone's help. Please visit the Golf Tournament page to view photos of the event.
Again, Thank You all.

Kenny Lohr's Yearbook

Help John Thomstatter (Board of Director) locate as many brothers as we can by lending him your yearbooks. John will go through them and try and located any of our brothers that are listed as KIA in Vietnam in order for his team to locate as many Veterans as he and his team can for "The Wall of Faces". John was able to get names of eight brothers from Kenny Lohr's BCT yearbook from, Fort Jackson, SC. SO lets see how many more we can find so we can make sure they are not forgotten and we can put a face to the name on the wall. Contact John at
