PAYMENTS:


HOW DO YOU PAY DUES, PURCHASE SMALL STORES OR MAKE A DONATION TO CGCVA?


PAY DUES:

DUES PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD IS AVAILABLE, ON THE TOP LEFT COLUMN ABOVE, ON THIS PAGE!


SMALL STORES PURCHASES:

SMALL STORES PAYMENTS BY CREDIT CARD ARE AVAILABLE ON THE SMALL STORES PAGE!!!!


DONATIONS:

MAKE A DONATION OF ANY AMOUNT, BY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD, ABOVE, ON THE TOP RIGHT COLUMN OF THIS PAGE.     

WE NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!


Out of the 1,300+  members of the CGCVA, only about 450 of you have submitted your email address.   That's only about 35% of you!


Why is your email needed?


If we have your email:


1) We can quickly let you know about events in your area.


2) We can make announcements quickly to the entire association that cannot wait until the next issue of the Quarterdeck Log comes out.


3) If your dues are past due, you'll get an email simply indicating that your dues are past due and you need to send money in right away, to keep your membership active.


4) We can contact you more quickly if we have a question about a payment we've received.

     

So many times we'll have your address in our system and get a check for your dues renewal and the addresses don't match.  Some times we get a check, which doesn't match the address in our system, and the return address on the envelope doesn't match the check or our system address so it's impossible to determine which is your current address.  So we call your phone number and it doesn't work or we leave a message and we get no response.  Email would help get the message to you and it's easier for you to respond.


5)  Email is the best form of communication.  It saves us having to mail you a post card when your dues are past due.   


6)  If email isn't your thing, we can use your kids or grandkid's email to send CGCVA notices.


So please consider joining the 21st century and send in your email address.


As a matter of fact, just email us at cgcva@comcast.net or just click on the highlighted "Email Address" above to open a pre addressed email and we'll receive your email address !!!!


We appreciate your cooperation!


Thank you!

VA Expands Agent Orange Eligibility for More Ships

 
The list of U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships associated with military service in Vietnam and possible exposure to Agent Orange has moved to the Veterans Benefits Administration compensation website. The updated list can now be found on VBA’s “Veterans Exposed to Agent Orange” Web page.

Honoring Vietnam War Veterans
and Their
Families

            Congress authorized the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration, to oversee the honoring of Vietnam War veterans and their families during 2015 to 2017.


            The Coast Guard Combat Veterans Association is a Commemorative Partner in this endeavor.  Consequently, we agree to carry out events and activities to salute Vietnam veterans.  These salutes may be initiated and done by our members.


            Things to honor veterans and their families can be anything you can imagine:  e.g. having students/youths compose essays; holding exhibits (photo, artifacts, models); holding ceremonies; hosting luncheons; giving talks; and so on.


            As a Commemorative Partner the CGCVA is called upon to provide the Vietnam War Commemoration submissions of upcoming events, if applicable, and an after-action summary of what we have done.  To remain a partner the Association has to perform at least two activities a year.


To get word out to our members please post the attached notice on our website. http://www.vietnamwar50th.com/

Thank you.
Paul C. Scotti
CGCVA Co-Founder/Historian Chairman,
Commemorative Partner Committee
