Viking Vets is a student organization at Portland State University to serve active military, veterans, and their families. Our mission is to bring past and current members of the U.S. or international armed forces together to promote, unify and advocate for the veteran voice on- and off-campus. Viking Vets aims to educate the community about how the military has affected the lives of service members and their families, to support those returning home from duty through the process of re-integration, and to aid student veterans in the transition from combat to college. Viking Vets members are committed to continuous improvement of the organization, creating positive change, and supporting the community through philanthropic service.
Viking Vets stands ready to help student veterans and their dependents achieve their education goals, providing information about veteran benefits and resources, and raising awareness when policies contradict the interests of our Nation’s heroes. Viking Vets provides the means for veterans’ concerns to be voiced in a safe and constructive manner and to bring awareness of these concerns to Portland State University and elected officials at various levels of government.
Viking Vets is about PEOPLE not politics (except when those politics deal directly with helping veterans and their families). Viking Vets is NOT affiliated with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Viking Vets is a chapter in good-standing with the Student Veterans of America.
