Letter of invitation

Join the Vinh Long Outlaws Association (VLOA)

To:  Former Members of All U.S. Army Aviation Organizations Whose “Outlaws” Lineage Emerged from the 62nd Aviation Company (11th Air Assault Division, Vietnam, & Iraq) and Their Attached Units.

The VLOA was organized in 1998 with the intention of holding a one-time reunion to renew old friendships formed between the unit’s officers, warrant officers, and enlisted members.  During that reunion, attendees voted unanimously to continue holding reunions biennially, and have done so.  During the 2008 Outlaws’ reunion, numerous inquiries resulted in a change to the constitution to open the VLOA to all follow-on Outlaws units whose lineage derived from the original 62nd Aviation Company (Vietnam) “Outlaws,” “Mavericks” (re-designated as "Bushwhackers" in 1971), 10th Transportation Detachment “Roadrunners,” 28th Signal Detachment, and 25th ID “door-gunners.” Planning for the 2016 Outlaw Roundup in Branson, MO is underway.  Visit the Reunion Page for more information about our 2014 50th Anniversary Roundup results.

The VLOA is open to all ranks from the following Outlaw units and their attachments:  62nd Aviation Company (Vietnam), A Company 502nd Aviation Battalion (Vietnam), 175th Assault Helicopter Company (Vietnam), B Troop 1st Battalion-158th Aviation Regiment (Iraq), 150th Transportation Detachment (Vietnam), 28th Signal Detachment (Vietnam), and 25th Infantry Division’s Door-gunners Detachment (Vietnam).  If you would like to join the VLOA or know someone that might do so, please use the VLOA Membership Form provided below to do so.

The VLOA needs our members' help.  Your dues are the financial underpinning that keeps our website and quarterly newsletters funded and continuing.  Please support the VLOA by renewing your membership ($25 annually for Regular & Associate members) each January or by joining as a Life Member or Associate Life Member ($100 one time payment).  Additional membership categories are available.  Additionally, all donations to and for the use of the VLOA are tax-exempt, based on IRS approval of the VLOA as a 501(c)19 war veterans' organization.

Sincerely,
Jim Donnelly
National Director
