Wellington LTD is proud to announce its partnership with the BVA. Together we have combined to produce a custom engraved 1911 .45 ACP pistol that captures the legacy of all the comrades who served. Utilizing 24 Karat Gold, Nickel and Black Copper, the different layers of plating bring out the iconic images. This type of firearm is to become a family heirloom and speaks to the motto “Our First Duty is to Remember”. Not only is the legacy of brave souls captured in steel but it also gives back to the BVA. Wellington LTD has pledged a donation for every pistol sold to the BVA. This supports the organization to continue its mission.
A Wellington LTD representative will be at the BVA Annual meeting with a display pistol for those interested in ordering a custom pistol. You can see more pictures and get additional details at https://wellingtonltd.com/beirut-veterans-of-america/

I’d like to say thank you to all of you who traveled to Jacksonville and to those who arranged and held separate Remembrance Ceremonies in other locations. If you weren’t able to attend a Remembrance I’m sure you were with us in spirit.
Congratulations go out to our new appointees and Board Member. They are:
Richard Truman ; New Membership Chair
Jeff Hamman; Root Scoop Editor
Stacey Pollard; Board of Directors
I look forward to working with all of you. Your willingness to step up and answer the call of service to the BVA speaks volumes.
A special thank you again this year to Dan Joy whose tireless efforts and leadership set an example for us all.
The BVA was established in 1992 by Beirut veterans who wanted a fraternal organization.
They are dedicated to keeping the memories alive of those comrades who paid the supreme sacrifice in supporting America’s quest for peace in Lebanon.
