Member Renewal Letter
The UVC was formed in October of 1922 and is composed of delegates from those veteran organizations, and their auxiliaries, chartered by the Congress of the United States and/or recognized by the State of California. The UVC is a non-political and non-sectarian organization established to promote the goals and objectives of all veteran organizations for the common good and welfare of all veterans, their dependents, widows, orphans, and citizens of the United States.
The primary mission of the UVC is to support the veterans and active duty military members, and their families, monetarily and morally, particularly those hospitalized in Veterans Administration institutions within the Santa Clara County area. This population is ethnically diverse and approximately ten-percent are disabled, primarily as a result of service to their country.
The goal of the UVC is to foster and support all veterans, through their respective organizations, and to further the exchange of information and ideas in order to provide better service to veterans and their families. The UVC promotes veteran activities and provides a sense of respect for all veterans and recognition of their sacrifices. The UVC is designed to pass on to posterity a sense of loyalty to our country, and respect for all veterans, living or dead. Additionally, the UVC:
The UVC also promotes the education of Americanism, patriotism, and sense of civic obligation to the youth of our community by support of Scouting and school programs. Members sponsor oratorical and essay contests on the Constitution, give speeches to youth groups and schools, and distribute literature promoting America.
