"For those who returned with the living, For those who returned with the dead, For those that never returned at all"
Michael G. Williams "Weird Willy" Died after Tour, June 15, 1997
We are a non-profit veteran organization filed under Section 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Service.
The VHCMA was organized in 1986 in Tucson Arizona by a small group of Crew Chiefs and Gunners that got together to share their experiences in Vietnam. As the group expanded, it was decided that they would form an organization for Crew Chiefs and Gunners. Over the years the organization grew as more and more members heard about the organization and joined. At our reunion in Richmond, Virginia in 1997, the membership voted to include pilots as full members to the organization. Since then our ranks have grown to a total membership of 5400 members. We have 1900 Active members. We are an international organization as many of our members are from other countries.
If you were a Crew Chief, Gunner, Pilot, Aero Medic, Flight Engineer, PJ, Oscar, or other flight specialist, then we would like to invite you to join us at the VHCMA (International). The VHCMA is a nonprofit, nonpolitical, fraternal association.
We consist of former enlisted and commissioned helicopter crew members and their families, and any other related interested parties. Our members have expressed a strong desire to belong to a group where meeting new friends, finding old friends, and remembering lost friends, can occur without distractions and we are receiving new members all of the time.
Our membership list is NOT made available for outside solicitation or other veteran causes.
we do not accept any advertizing on our website.
To seek out individuals who were crew members on helicopters during the Vietnam War. We want to make them aware of the Vietnam Helicopter Crew Members Association (VHCMA) and encourage eligible individuals to join us.
