Veteran Associations

  • Hopewell Valley Veterans It is the mission of the Hopewell Valley Veterans Association (HVVA) to establish and promote friendship, camaraderie, understanding and cooperation between all Veterans, members of the Association and the Hopewell Valley community by providing support to other Veterans organizations within Hopewell Valley and in doing so strengthen the image of the American Veteran. It is also the mission of the Hopewell Valley Veterans Association to erect and care for a permanent memorial for those residents of Hopewell Valley that have honorably served in a war, conflict, campaign or expedition at the request of the President of the United States or its Congress and Senate.
