1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association
Membership Policies

 

  1. The 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association is an official “Unit Chapter” of the 1st Marine Division Association. Our stated purpose is to support the Association and their Scholarship Program, and to support our troops.
  2. The 1/5 Vietnam Veterans publish a newsletter, The Fourragere, which is sent out three times a year to all those on our newsletter mailing list, free of charge to all “members in good standing” of our Association, or to those who wish to receive the newsletter via email attachment. Our newsletter is our primary form of communication between our organization and over 600 Vietnam Veterans who served in the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, as well as family members and friends. Newsletter issues include information about our annual reunions and other events and items of interest, stories that happened to 1/5 Vietnam Veterans during the war, and other stories about more current events.
  3. Membership in the 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Unit Chapter is completely voluntary. You do not have to become a Chapter Member to continue receiving The Fourragere. If you are not a current member but still wish to receive our newsletter via the U. S. Postal Service, we ask for a $10.00 per year subscription fee. Or, if you are willing to receive the newsletter via email attachment, it will be sent to you, upon request and receipt of your email address, free of charge.
  4. The only requirement for membership in the 1/5 Vietnam Veterans Association is that the applicant must be a “member in good standing” of the 1st Marine Division Association. Applications for membership in the 1st Marine Division Association can be obtained in their magazine, The Old Breed News, or on-line at:
