Welcome to the South Texas Regional Group of the Blinded Veterans Association (STRG/BVA) Website.
We are an organization specifically established to promote the welfare of blinded veterans. Through our service programs, groups and benefits, we hope to make life easier for blinded veterans and help by being there with encouragement and support. We are here to help veterans and their families meet the challenges of blindness.
There is no charge for any BVA service. Membership is not a prerequisite. All legally blind veterans are eligible for BVA's help whether they became blind during or after active duty.
Founded in 1945, the BVA received its charter from the United States Congress in 1958. Since that time, the Blinded Veterans Association has worked to accomplish the mission expressed in our Congressional Charter.
Throughout BVA's history, Congress and the Department of Veterans Affairs have meritoriously recognized the Association. BVA was and is the only veterans service organization exclusively dedicated to serving America's blind and visually impaired veterans.
Veterans don't have to lose their vision during military service to qualify for BVA assistance.
Membership in the BVA is not a prerequisite for any service.
