"NO event in American HISTORY is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now."
IT IS TIME TO REMEMBER THE VIETNAM GENERATION
We, as a nation, have, through the sacrifice of our veterans and military members, incurred a solemn obligation to support the Vietnam Veterans of America in every way possible now and into the future. We must remember those who were called upon to give all a person can provide, and we must not forget those who were prepared to make that ultimate sacrifice if demanded of them in the line of duty. Most of all, we must remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a great but forgotten war. We must embrace the heroes of Vietnam; their dedication and sacrifice must never be forgotten, and the promises made to this nation’s heroes must be fully and faithfully honored - this program is for them.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CONDUCT RETURN PROGRAMS BACK TO VIETNAM
Our return Programs to the battlefields of Vietnam justifies the timeless principles of peace and justice by raising awareness of the selfless courage all Vietnam War veterans exercised when they answered the call to help defend the ideals of our nation, in hopes that future generations will never forget their sacrifices or those who were left behind. If you are interested in participating in our return Programs, please review the FAQ at the bottom of this page before applying.
Our momentous programs back to Veteran will be used:
To provide veterans of Vietnam with the opportunity to revisit their past fields of battle, thereby gaining closure and putting to rest some of the memories they have wrestled with for decades;
To provide the essential tools to help encourage and promote peace and reconciliation by connecting U.S. soldiers with former NVA and VC soldiers through various educational initiatives developed by the Foundation;
To educate youth and future generations in Vietnam and throughout the United States about the meaning of duty, honor, and sacrifice, as was defined and defended by these veteran’s many decades ago;
To provide a world-class platform for veterans to share their stories which will serve to accomplish goals 1, 2 and 3, bridging the intergenerational gap found throughout the world by honoring and remembering the 58,220 Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
