The Norwegian Veterans Association for International Operations (NVIO)
is a nationwide interest organization for military personnel having participated in international operations, and their dependents.
We are working at all levels to improve veterans´ conditions, and represent the veterans and their families in a best possible way. This ranges from influencing the political level to arranging activities in local societies. Inbetween these two, we have a peer program to support those in need during a dire period.
The members of NVIO stood shoulder by shoulder while serving. NVIO is striving to ensure that the veterans have a supporting shoulder within reach. Even though the vast majority do well after serving abroad, some veterans struggle with physical problems and psychological reactions.
