Malaysian Armed Forces Chinese Veterans Association (MACVA) became a Tri-Services Veterans Associations on 8 Jun 2017. MACVA was formally approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Ministry of Defends, Malaysia as a Veterans Association on 31 Aug 2016.
This is in accordance to Section 13 of the Veteran Act 2012. It was a very auspicious day for MACVA as it is also the 59th National Day of Malaysia. We are a group of retired Malaysian Armed Forces Veterans with more than 500 life members.
We were formed purely out of concerned for our future generations. We believe in our Malaysian Dream of a just, caring society in a harmonious, united and progressive country. We want a better tomorrow for every son and daughter in our beautiful country. We want them to be proud to call this land home.
We are veterans with a wide range of knowledge and experience. We are honorable and respectable. Our aims are noble and achievable. We are a special breed of people who had served the King and Country loyally, risked our lives and contributed much to nation building. We want to continue serving the nation in bringing the Malaysian dream to fruition. To achieve this we want to be heard and respected and be a credible organization.
我们这群退伍老兵拥有不同的专长和经验，曾经光荣的为国效力。我们的目标崇高但也务实。在华社中，我们是特别的一群， 曾经忠诚的效力国家和元首，用生命来捍卫和建立国家。我们将继续朝向美好的马来西亚梦而努力。 为此，成为一道可信赖的呼声是我们要达致的。
Who Are We
We are an organization where men and women have sacrificed a huge part of their life defending the nation in the frontline. These were the men and women that brought peace to the nation when the CPM laid down arms, which were both the direct and indirect efforts of these men and women. We are the veterans of the Malaysian Armed Forces of Chinese descendents who had proudly and loyally defended the nation and help in nation building since independence.
我们这团体是由马来西亚陆军华裔男女前军人所组成，他们为了防御国家内外敌人以及保卫最高元首， 牺牲了年轻岁月及一生中大部分的时间，在前线努力战斗及在后方支援作出无价的奉献。他们与其他的国家安全部队， 对马来西亚的和平尤其是马共投诚有着重大的贡献。所有马来西亚人今天享受着独立以后的和平， 可以归因于这些华裔前军人成员们过去直接或间接的付出和牺牲。
