Fund Raising

On and around Vietnam Veterans Day (August 18) each year, the VVAA conducts a fund raising exercise known as Badge Week. Badge Week is the major fund raising activity of the VVAA and RAAFVVA. Funds raised are used to provide the organisational, welfare and support services required by the veteran community.
