Welcome to VASAA
Veterans' Association for Service Activities Abroad
- Basic family relationships are affected by loss, separation
and physical hardship as a consequence of war and other political
or economic disturbances.
- These losses adversely affect the structure of a society,
its cultural values and thus the future of its existence.
- Supported and facilitated reunification of families separated
by war and other disturbances through programs legally established
by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
and other recognized national or international agencies or governments;
- Provided moral and material assistance to client families;
- Encouraged the re-establishment of spiritual and religious
ties damaged by war and political upheavals;
- Sought to improve over-all conditions of health, nutrition,
and family welfare via basic humanitarian aid and training where
the need was verified;
- Cooperated with other humanitarian agencies or charitable
organizations projects in a facilitating but limited role;
- Participated in special or specific projects in cooperation
with other U.S. veterans' organizations.
By virtue of the personal experiences of VASAA in Viet Nam,
Southeast Asia, Europe, and other distressed parts of the world,
the Association demonstrated a particular interest in the above
goals relative to, but not exclusive to, those countries or regions
where its help is requested.
The Founders of VASAA agreed that when the original objectives
or goals were met, the Association would no longer continue said
projects. For that reason, effective 6 June 1998, VASAA
terminated all international programs.
The Association remains as a resource for consultation and
fellowship but is no longer active in refugee, immigration, family
search or international humanitarian projects.
