Veterans Group San Quentin

(V.G.S.Q., formerly V.V.G.S.Q.)

- Serving and representing Military Veterans of all eras, wars and conflicts -

San Quentin State Prison
San Quentin, California



We are a group of honorably discharged veterans, who are contributing to society......... and we are all incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison. This is our story.

With this inspiration it is hoped that you too will open your heart to help those in need.




News Update!



"To maintain the integrity of the Founding Fathers of the VVGSQ, we the current body of veterans have incorporated changes to our previous By-Laws to include and address all honorably discharged veteran's needs. Subsequently, we have changed the name of our group to the Veterans group of San Quentin (VGSQ).
We endeavor to bring personal accountability and structure into our lives. We will continue to maintain the high standard of honor and integrity that our Founding Fathers set forth. We know that we must take responsibility for our own actions. However, it is not enough to just try and get home, but rather to live free regardless of our circumstances."
