The Leaflet Drop
The Newsletter of the PSYOP Veterans Association
1 October 2017
The PSYOP Veterans Association (POVA) is the oldest, longest-serving private Association dedicated to the interests of PSYOP soldiers, veterans, Gold Stars, friends, and families. Founded in 1988, POVA is working diligently to expand our communication activities to include all soldiers and veterans and US and Allied Psychological Operations, while also working to raise funds to work collaboratively with other groups helping to support our fellow veterans in need.
From an active roster of less than 50 Psywarriors in 2015, POVA now carries a total roster of nearly 550, with over 300 actual members. Our membership includes PSYOP veterans, soldiers in Reserve PSYOP units, and soldiers in active duty PSYOP units. Our relationships with Gold Star families are expanding, and we hope to honor them during our Biennial Reunions when we celebrate those who were lost while in service to our Nation.
POVA's newsletter is published monthly by email to all members with active email addresses, and is "snail-mailed" to those few who are not computer accessible. The newsletter will include any worthwhile information submitted by or for our fellow Psywarriors.
I hope you will take some time to view the other sections of our website. We update and amend the site periodically, so visit early and often. Any POVA products sold from our website will generate funds to cover our minimal operating expenses as well as to support our charitable purposes to benefit fellow veterans and their families.
