PSYOP Veterans Association


Home of the 10th PSYOP Battalion, 307th & 318th PSYOP Companies


Welcome to the home of the very first POVA Chapter! Founded in 1988, the Psychological Operations Veterans Association reunited 5 former members of the 6th PSYOP BN who had served together in Vietnam. 30 Years later, the National Association has grown, forming its very first Chapter, right here in St. Louis...The Gateway Chapter. 

Chapter meetings are generally the last Saturday of every month at the Manchester Elks, 1 PM. Click the event calendar above to get the details and let us know you're coming.


Save the Date! 29 SEP 

What's this? A long overdue event with the Battalion? Yes! Mark your calendars for Saturday, 28 SEP 2019. Time and place are still being worked. Keep an eye out here, our Facebook Page (click below to like and follow us) or your other 10th BN unit Facebook pages for details as they get firmed up.


What is POVA?

The United States Army Psychological Operations Veterans Association (POVA) is the oldest continuous serving Veterans' Association providing membership support, reconnection, reunion and philanthropic support to America's PSYOP Soldiers and Veterans. Founded in 1988, POVA continually seeks to support and assist our fellow PSYOP Veterans.

POVA is a registered, tax-exempt, charitable and educational association pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

POVA honors the memory and sacrifice of our fellow soldiers who have fallen during combat deployments. May all of our lost Brethren rest in honored glory and peace.

Reconnect, stay connected and swap stories with your brothers & sisters at local and National events. Keep up with what's happening in the Spec Ops, and PSYOP Communities.

Our membership is now over 400, and we are proud to have enrolled 155 Life Members. The "Leaflet Drop" is the monthly POVA newsletter containing great PSYOP info & articles. 


If you are currently serving in an Active duty or Reserve PSYOP unit, your membership is FREE as long as you are serving. You do not have to pay dues until after you ETS or retire.
