Veterans Affairs Volunteer Service (VAVS) Program

The Military Order of the Purple Heart’s Veterans Affairs Volunteer Service (VAVS) Program is in effect throughout the VA medical center system. VAVS operates the largest volunteer program in the Federal Government, supplementing staff and resources in all areas of patient care and support. Volunteers supplement essential personnel, equipment, facilities and programs for the direct and indirect care, treatment and welfare of veteran patients. Military Order of the Purple Heart VAVS volunteers participate in the VA’s program and provide an invaluable service to other veterans and their families. The official VAVS Handbook is available for download below and on the downloads page to provide guidance to the Department and Chapter members involved in the Service. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the National VAVS Director or call Willie Pargo

 There will be a press release later this week…..

We have received the budget letter from the PH Foundation indicating we have funding for the NSP for the 2018/2019 budget year. With the agreement and commitment of the PH Foundation to fulfill their contractual obligation and concurrence of the National Commander, I am rescinding the NSP Closure Plan. Effective immediately NSOs are advised to start accepting POAs and aiding Veterans and their families with processing VA claims and appeals. I will advise the VA we are and will remain a viable VSO.

This has been a trying period for all of us and my concern was the perceived lose of value of our program and the importance of the service we provide to Veterans. I apologize for the stress this situation created and look forward to rebuilding your trust and confidence as we continue to be the premiere VSO for all Veterans, their spouses and families.

AssociateApplication

Military order of the Purple Heart Department of Minnesota has approved $2,000 for free associate membership for the next 40 associate members

We are doing this in an effort to increase the amount of people taking part with chapter activities in an effort to make chapters more active. We have seen from chapters that have a high number of associate members that more members are attending  their chapter meetings that the chapters are more active, and we would like to see every chapter raising money, getting out in the community and doing good things for veterans.

We understand that there will be a gap in the age between Vietnam veterans and Iraq, Afghanistan veterans and we think our best chance for chapters to survive the next 10-20 years would be filling that gap with associate members. Associate members can be children of Purple Heart veteran’s or spouse’s or brothers and sisters.
