VVA is organized as a not-for-profit corporation and is tax exempt under section 501 (c) (19) of the Internal Revenue Service code. Vietnam Veterans of America is a national service organization with 650 Chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, The Philippines, Guam and Puerto Rico, and only 48 state councils.   GOALS:   VVA’s goals are to promote and support the full range of issues important to the Vietnam veterans, to create a new identity for this generation of veterans, and to change public perception of Vietnam veterans. VIETNAM VETERANS’ MEMORIAL: The Vietnam Veterans' Memorial consists of ten columns of black granite etched with the names of Arizonans killed or missing in action.

VIETNAM FIELD CROSS MEMORIAL:
In the early 1990’s, Mary L. Rahm had a vision that she introduced to her son-in-law Larry Brown. The Arizona Field Cross Fund
Committee which raised funds for the  purchase and the placement of a bronze sculpture “Field Cross Memorial” now located
at the National Memorial Cemetery in Phoenix Arizona was established. After several long years of hard work, reconfiguring of the
memorial from outside to inside, fund raising, and government interaction with the National Cemetery System in Washington D.C.,
all the necessary approvals were received. Larry worked with John Smither of Eldorado Springs, Missouri who designed the initial
rendering. After several more years, Larry found Larry Peters and worked with him to complete Smither’s basic design.  Larry,
along with Dusty Rhoades and Terry Nolan  wrote a letter to the Arizona State Council introducing the original bronze titled
“Tranquil Ground”. Larry stated that it is a work that communicates a sense of honor, healing, and that stands as an appropriate
memorial for veterans of the Vietnam War-both living and dead. “Tranquil Ground” will be now known as “Field Cross”. The
memorial was dedicated on September 22nd, 2001 at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona. Larry stated that “This will not only
serve as a monument to those who were lost in Vietnam, but also as a symbol of the American Spirit
