About the USV-A

The United States Volunteers - America

 A not-for-profit organization with units throughout the country, whose primary mission is to assist in the rendering of Military Funeral Honors. Units also perform community service as Color Guard for Veterans ceremonies.  As a Service Organization serving Veterans, United States Volunteers – America claims its heritage from Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders; the last volunteer cavalry unit to serve. The Rough Riders were officially called the “United States Volunteers” and wore USV as their collar insignia.  Today, USV-A troopers wear a modified US Army uniform with unique insignia, rank and distinctive, non-federal, buttons. We are in compliance with AR670-1 Chapter 30 regulations, in accordance with rules as a military society.  Troopers are trained and certified in accordance with AP3 and TACOM regulations. All veterans honorably discharged and patriotic individuals lineally descended from Honorably Discharged veterans over the age of 18 my apply for membership in their local unit USV-A. Training and certifications are provided and the need for dedicated volunteers is great.  Information provided by USV-A National Headquarters
