Welcome Aboard to RVAHNAVY!


RVAHNAVY Association Mission Statement

The RVAHNAVY Association exists to serve the men and women who were associated with the United States Navy RVAH and VAH communities. Our mission is to honor those who served by providing resources, information, sponsoring reunions and remembering our Shipmates. 

RVAHNAVY Gear is offline. Current orders will be fulfilled or refunded depending upon stock.

We are currently evaluating our Gear Locker situation and will be making an announcement soon. All outstanding orders will be fulfilled if we have the inventory and if not, you will be refunded.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

With regards to the possibility of a reunion cruise, that is suspended for now. Working two full time jobs doesn't give me the time or opportunity to put this together. I am very sorry as I was hoping it would happen.
