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 some of our members are from other countries.

Were you a crew member on any type of helicopter used in Vietnam?

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 other interested related 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 advertising on our website.

Our Mission Statement

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.
