Welcome to the Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans
& Associated Forces Inc.
Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans’ Association was formed on ANZAC Day, 1985 as an autonomous, apolitical organization to foster social contact with all who have had any active service, in any service arm or civil capacity, during the period of the Australian involvement in the war in Vietnam.
The membership base now extends from Cooktown to Perth and overseas.
During 1998, the membership of RAAF Vietnam Association decided that they would like to become incorporated within this association and during 2003 the membership of “Skippy Squadron” Association (former Qantas staff members who flew Department of Defence charter flights in and out of Vietnam during the Vietnam war and have been subsequently awarded the Logistic Support medal and the Australian Active Service Medal), decided that they would like to become incorporated within the Association. The Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans and Associated Forces Inc. welcomed these decisions.
Because of the character of this association, it does not involve itself in any possible controversy on Vietnam or in any other matters relative to any military involvement.
This association now places strong emphasis on involvement in members, their families and/or dependent’s welfare/needs in its activities.
