Irish United Nations Veterans
Why You Should Join Us in Fermoy
Post 25 Fermoy.
Post 25 of the Irish United Nations Veterans was formed in Fermoy in January 2003. Since then we have gone from strength to strength. We now have 60+ members, which is great considering that our catchment area is very fragmented
Membership is open to anyone resident in Ireland not necessarily Irish or an Irish citizen living abroad who has successfully completed a tour of duty with a UN force or organisation or a UN mandated mission, whether he or she is serving or retired.
Some members have had a very brief stint in the Army and may only have completed one tour of overseas duty, while others have made the Army their career and have several tour under their belts, others may fall somewhere in between.
What are the benefits of Membership?
Members enjoy the benefits of being part of an organisation that prides itself in being well organised, professionally run and in tune with their ideas of what a veterans’ association should provide and which cares for the well being of former soldiers who may have fallen on hard times.
Becoming a member of IUNVA gives one the opportunity to re-establish links with the Army, meet old comrades and friends, take part in parades, outings and other events, while at the same time having a voice in how your local post is run.
Should you be interested in military history, then you will have plenty of opportunities to make new contacts and take part in events of which otherwise you may not have been aware.
IUNVA membership will enable members to gain access to military clubs both at home and overseas. Card carrying members can join the Victory Services in London, which offers accommodation, food, and drink to members at reasonable prices.
No matter how long or short ones Army service has been, we all have one thing in common and that is a soft spot for the Army and all things military.
The level of comradeship experienced in the Army is seldom matched in civilian life. However being a member of IUNVA brings back that feeling of camaraderie that only those who have been in the service can understand.
Post 25 supports local charities has its own flag day and of course provides advice and counselling to members and their families who have been affected by overseas service.
Members go on numerous outings and take part in commemorative events throughout the year.
Post 25 takes part in many events too numerous to mention here, but we invite you to come along and find out for your self the broad range of activities in which we are involved.
You will be pleasantly surprised at what IUNVA membership has to offer. To join us will cost a mere €24 for one year of membership. This may be paid by monthly deductions of 2 Euro for those with an Army pension, by direct debit or through the Post Treasurer
