We invite you to be a part of this exciting national event by becoming an individual or corporate/organizational sponsor.

Annual National Sponsor:
Veterans Canteen Service (VCS)
VCS is proud to be a part of the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a self-sustaining entity, VCS provides merchandise and services to Veterans enrolled in VA’s Health Care System, their families, caregivers, VA employees, volunteers and visitors. We are honored to “give back” to the VA through many programs established for the health and well-being of our nation’s heroes. Revenues generated from VCS are used to support a variety of Veteran programs.
Health & Wellness Expo:
The annual National Veterans Golden Age Games Health & Wellness Expo promotes our motto of “Fitness for Life” to approximately 800 senior American Veterans and many VA clinicians who attend the Games. The Expo enhances the athlete experience and provides you with an interactive opportunity to feature a sampling of various demonstrations, displays and products that can help our senior Veterans maintain their active lifestyles.
Volunteers donating their time and talents are essential to the success of the National Veterans Golden Age Games. We typically need the support to fulfill approximately 1,000 various volunteer shifts throughout the week of the Games. Information on volunteer registration for the 2022 NVGAG in Sioux Falls will be provided after the new year. Please continue to check this website for updates. To be added to the mailing list for interested volunteers, please send an email to NVGAGVolunteers@va.gov.
During Older Americans Month, nearly 500 Veterans 55 years of age and older participated in a series of sport challenges and competitions allowing them to continue in the spirit of the NVGAG and show their athleticism “at Home!” With their energy and passion for “Fitness for Life,” Veterans proved they will keep going the distance to a healthy and active lifestyle.
Veterans competed in nine medaled events, including air rifle, basketball free throw, disc golf, cycling (5k and 20k), powerwalk, bowling, and track and field.
Here’s Air Force and OEF/OIF Veteran Dennis Linn, representing VA Black Hills Health Care System, going all out in the discus competition.
