Education Outreach

Our Education Outreach Program started in the Fall of 2011.  It is designed to bring Vietnam veterans, spouses, or any other interested party into schools and bring the experiences of these folks to the youth of today so that they have a non-traditional, first person account of the Vietnam War.  Contact gmccormick@vva925.org for more info
