"NO event in American HISTORY is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now."

REMEMBERING VIETNAM - 1955 TO 1975

The Vietnam War was fought between North Vietnam, supported by its communist allies, and South Vietnam, backed by the United States, from November 1, 1955 until April 30, 1975. North Vietnam wanted to unite Vietnam under one communist government, since it had previously been a French colony. The anti-communist government of South Vietnam resisted this idea and fought the North Vietnamese army with help from the U.S. The U.S.'s involvement in this Cold War era conflict was part of their larger goal of "containment"—preventing the spread of communism.

The U.S.'s involvement in the Vietnam War was—and remains—a highly controversial topic. Thousands of Americans were forced to fight in the war, and lost their lives as a result. Some Americans believe it was the duty of the nation to defend other nations from the threat of communism. Others believe it was not the U.S.'s place to get involved and that it was a costly mistake. Regardless of the numerous points of view, there is no arguing the impact of the Vietnam War on American history and society. It remains a very controversial topic that continues to affect political and military decisions today.

IT'S TIME FOR OUR NATION TO RISE-UP AND ACKNOWLEDGE OUR VIETNAM VETERANS

Now is the time for our citizens to step up and acknowledge all that our Vietnam veterans have done for America. Through the sacrifice of our veterans and military members, we as a nation have incurred a solemn obligation to support them in every way possible, now and in the future.We remember those who were prepared to make that ultimate sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty.  We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that ultimate sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which these veterans ennobled their nation as they became champions of an honorable 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.

ABOUT THE WAR WITHOUT HEROES INITIATIVE

The War Without Heroes Initiative, a program of The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation, vindicates the timeless principles of peace and justice in the world by raising awareness of the selfless courage all Vietnam war veterans exercised when they were called to duty, in hopes that future generations will recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by the allies of the United States during the Vietnam War and to never forget their sacrifices or those who were left behind.

Our momentous programs back to Veteran will be used:

  1. 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;
  2. To provide the essential tools to help encourage and promote peace and reconciliation by connecting Allied soldiers with former NVA soldiers and local citizens through various educational initiatives developed by the Foundation;
  3. To educate youth and future generations about the meaning of duty, honor and sacrifice, as was defined and defended by these veteran’s many decades ago;
  4. To provide a platform for veterans to share their stories which will serve to accomplish goals 1, 2 and 3 that will help bridge the intergenerational gap throughout the world to honor and remember the 58,220 Americans that paid the ultimate sacrifice.

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR - DECEMBER 07, 1941:

Japan's December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and six other military bases on the Hawaiian island of Oahu that precipitated America's entry into World War II, a global conflict. Pearl Harbor endures as a symbol of American resilience and resolve, and the annual commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor fosters reflection, remembrance, and understanding.

REMEMBERING THE PAST:

The 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor is an opportunity to honor the sacrifice and dedication of our "Greatest Generation" both civilian and military, they endured incredible sacrifices on December 7, 1941, the "date which will live in infamy." It would thrust America into World War II, changing Hawaii and America forever and continues to define their place in the world. The events of that date triggered our resolve as a nation, our can-do attitude and resourcefulness and an unmatched commitment to the defense of freedom.

INSPIRING THE FUTURE THROUGH DUTY | HONOR | COUNTRY

Understanding past events and their consequences can inspire reverence for an emotional commitment to peaceful solutions to conflict. How do we help future generations chart their way toward peace and prosperity? A key focus of the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor will be to bridge the gap between our generations to better understand and learn directly from those that endured December 07.

THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF PEARL HARBOR PARTNERS

The Greatest GENERATIONS Foundation wishes to acknowledge GREAT CLIPS for championing the opportunity to support the return of 30 Pearl Harbor survivors back to the Hawaiian Islands to pay homage and recognize the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. As a united ‘brand’, we also want to thank THE WINNICK FOUNDATION, HILTON HAWAIIAN HOTEL, MATSON, ADP, AMERICAN AIRLINES and FOX NETWORK for their ongoing support to the Foundation in recognizing the short window of time left with these American HEROES. Together, we will pay tribute to those who sacrificed dearly for their country and for freedom, should know that the gratitude we all share, should be bestowed upon them and their generation’s sacrifices, while also documenting their legacies so future generations may better know how their love of country changed the course of humanity.

"These esteemed veterans will have died without the closure that could allow them to make sense of their sacrifices."
