VVA Chicago Chapter 242, a Veteran Service Organization, is guided by the principal "Never again shall one generation of Veterans abandon another". To that end, we provide assistance to Veterans,
other Veteran organizations and Veteran groups. We contribute to the area VA Hospitals and Extended Care Facilities, particularly around the holidays and other days that honor Veterans throughout the year.
When a chapter member passes, we give to the Veteran's family, a monetary token of appreciation to commemorate their life, lived in service to our country.
We support the VVA Illinois State Council in providing Veteran Service Officers to assist Veterans of all wars and conflicts with filling claims for disabilities related to their military service.
We also support our National organization to continue the fight to obtain the benefits, our Veterans need and deserve, related to their time served in the Armed Services.
