Vets for Vets


In 1972, a group of Vietnam Veterans identified the need for a group to help counsel veterans about their service related benefits at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In response, they created Vets for Vets, a student-run veteran group on campus.

In 2008, VfV joined the Student Veterans of America and became the local UW-Madison Chapter. SVA is a coalition of student veteran groups across the United States which advocates on behalf of student veterans at the local, state, and national level.

Our mission is to provide information on benefits and other support activities to student veterans attending the UW-Madison, while raising awareness to the general student population of the veterans’ experience.

In addition to active duty veterans, VfV serves members of the Reserve, National Guard, dependents of disabled and/or deceased veterans, and others eligible for benefits from either the state or federal Departments of Veteran Affairs. Membership is open to all UW-Madison students.
