About The Americal Division Veterans Association

Americal Vets at a Bob Hope ShowAmerical Division veterans returning home from World War II founded the Americal Division Veterans Association in November 1945. They wanted to preserve the special closeness they enjoyed during the war and to collect and teach the history of the Americal Division. ADVA members served in the Americal Division and 23rd Infantry Division in World War II, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War. They reside in all 50 states and several U.S territories and foreign countries.
