Veterans Sportsman’s Association Mission Statement

The Veteran Sportsman’s Associations’ (VSA) mission is to honor Northern California’s
Veterans, active duty military, and their families with quality happy and healthy outdoor
related activities in an effort to combat today’s alarmingly high rate of suicide,
depression, divorce, and substance abuse.

ABOUT Veterans Sportsman’s Association

We are a highly motivated 501c3 Non-profit organization with 100% of its members being non-paid Volunteers. This means we take absolutely all of the funds generated through fundraising and donations and apply them to assisting our local Veterans/Active duty military and their families in experiencing quality, happy and healthy outdoor activities within Northern California.
