Americal Division Veterans Association

"Under the Southern Cross"

ABOUT US

The Americal Division Veterans Association was founded in 1945 by veterans returning from World War II.  It is incorporated in the state of Massachusettes and is a IRS 501c19 war veterans organization.

Membership is open to all personnel assigned or attached to the Americal Divison or the 23rd Infantry Division during three periods of activation:  World War II (1942-1945), Cold War (1954-1956), and the Vietnam War (1967-1971).

The ADVA is operated by elected officers to include Commander, Sr. Vice-Commander, Jr. Vice-Commander, and an Executive Committee of 11-18 elected and appointed members.  The ADVA has 10-15 appointed officers that handle the day-to-day activities of the organization.

The ADVA is closely associated with the Americal Legacy Foundation, an IRS 501c3 organization founded in 2013 to carry out activities of benefit to Americal veterans to include the design and construction of memorials and the award of scholarships to offspring of ADVA members.

 

The ADVA publishes full-color magazine called the Americal Journal.  It is provided free of charge to all members of the ADVA.  Members are encouraged to submit their stories and photos for consideration for publishing in the AMERICAL JOURNAL.  If you are not a member of the ADVA you may request a free sample copy of the magazine by sending a request to This email address is being protected from spambots.
