Vietnamese American Uniformed Services Association Reaches 10-Year Milestone, Hosting Gala Event to Promote Future Generations of Leaders Springfield, VA – The Vietnamese American Uniformed Services Association (VAUSA) will host a 10-year anniversary gala at 7:00 pm on October 27, 2018, at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott 45020 Aviation Dr., Dulles, VA 20166. VIP reception with service members will be at 5:30 pm.

This milestone celebration, with the theme of Promoting Our Future Leaders, recognizes the contributions and pays tribute to the sacrifices made by the United States uniformed service members of Vietnamese descent.

VAUSA, founded in 2008 as a nonprofit veterans’ organization, consists of 1,200+ members worldwide who have ever put on the uniform to serve the United States of America with honor. VAUSA’s sole purpose is to serve these unsung heroes through fostering camaraderie and enriching their professional and personal developments.

These sustainable efforts are aimed squarely at helping the members and their families overcome major frequently-experienced life challenges such as being deployed to the austere, dangerous, isolated and hardship areas and war zones; dealing with the permanent physical or emotional wounds; and finding their way to integrate back to normal civilian life.

Specifically, VAUSA sends deployed members a taste of home through its Care Package program; distributes toys to children during the holiday season through Full Hearts Holiday Gift event; expresses thanks at the Member’s Family Appreciation event; recognizes the members’ achievements at its Biennial Uniformed Services Gala; grows and develops future leaders through the VAUSA Annual Mentorship Dinner; and most importantly, recognizes the ultimate sacrifices by service members through the Vietnamese American Fallen Heroes Scholarship program.
