The veteran movement of the Tyumen region has its own glorious history. The first forms of organization of pensioners in Tyumen appeared in the late 1950s. In the early 1960s, the first councils of veterans were established in Tobolsk (the Council of veterans of rivermen, the Council of veterans of physicians), in Tyumen (the Council of veterans of pedagogical labor). In May 1967, the Ishim District Council of Veterans was established. However, the created councils of veterans worked disjointed.
By 1968, the veterans came to a consensus on the need to create a single regional organization uniting veterans of the party, Komsomol, war and labor.
The first joint meeting (conference) under the regional Komsomol committee with the participation of the veteran activists of Tyumen, Tobolsk, Ishim, Yalutorovsk and a number of districts was held in Tyumen on April 8-9, 1968. Three main issues were considered at the meeting: the selection of the regional council of veterans, the approval of the council's regulations, the role of veterans in the education of young people. On April 9, 1968, Vladimir Lukyanovich Malchevsky was elected chairman of the Regional Council of Veterans. A.B. Gambarov, Z.N. Tarasova, V.I. Beryukov, G.V. Vasiliev, P.D. Prokhoritsin, N.G. Musko, M.S. Ulybin, S.I. Kubasova were elected to the Council of bureau members. Four sections were created for the work of the council: veterans of the Party and Komsomol, army and Navy, labor, education and culture.
Since that time, veteran work has begun. Veterans conducted lessons of patriotic education in schools, were organizers and participants of the games "Zarnitsa", "Eaglet", participated in the creation and operation of school museums, rooms of military and labor glory, organization of search work.
