The story of the Deported Veteran has strongly been centered on our Latino brethren south of the border. There are Deported Veterans all around the world. This is the story of the Black Deported Veteran.

"This ain't a brown thing, it's an American thing!"

Black Deported Veterans of America (BDVA) is a support group for those that served in the United States military, and were subsequently deported to the countries where they were born.  The predominant make up of the group is by those that identify as Black or African American...but support is open for ALL Deported Veterans. This website is geared towards raising awareness of the plight of the Black Deported Veterans; bios and updates on select individual Black Deported Veterans; updates on changes in U.S. policy; and avenues for public and private support.
