The Viet Nam Veterans of Diablo Valley (VNVDV) is one of the premiere veteran service organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area! This group of veterans are involved in many worthwhile projects & programs serving veterans - those currently serving in the military & the community! As a veteran... if you are looking for an "active" group to join - you will not find a greater organization! They meet on the first Thursday of each month at Crow Canyon Country Club in Danville beginning at 1700 Hrs. for social and the Chef's choice buffet ($25 - all you can eat) begins at 1800 Hrs. - followed by a featured guest speaker! No business in the "open" meetings - just a great evening with fellow veterans & supporters. More information and their monthly newsletter "Incoming" can be found online at: www.VNVDV.com
Review from Guidestar
I found out about this organization in the local newspaper (Contra Costa Times) back in 2004. I got involved with the East Bay Stand Down in 2004 and became their bookkeeper/accountant. I was finally asked in 2006 to become a check signer for EBSD but would have to join the Vietnam Veterans of Diablo Valley (I am an Air Force Vietnam Vet) because they held the fiduciary responsibility for Stand Down. On Memorial Day in 2007, the Executive Director of the East Bay Stand Down asked me if I would help the Vietnam Vets by taking over as the Treasurer because the current Treasurer had come down with Hodgkins Disease. I didn't hesitate. I joined their Board and was Treasurer until December 2009. I am still an active member of VNVDV and I am now the Finance Officer for the East Bay Stand Down (eastbaystanddown.org) and for the Diablo Valley Veterans Foundation (and a Founder/Director) which now has the fiscal responsibility for the East Bay Stand Down.
