China Burma India Veterans Association
The China-Burma-India Veterans Association was founded in Milwaukee, WI in 1948 as the only veterans organization representing an entire Theater of Operations as opposed to those founded by various units (e.g. The Hump Pilots Assoc., The Flying Tigers of the 14th Air Force, etc.). The CBIVA closed its books in 2005 and contributed its assets to the World War II Museum in New Orleans and the Admiral Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg, TX. Here is a link to their archives.
