LEARN ABOUT THE VIETNAM WAR FROM THOSE WHO
Since 1987, members of VVA Chapter 227 have shared their Tour of Duty experiences with a multitude of audiences from elementary school students to senior citizens groups. Past speakers have included nurses, Red Cross service personnel, and men and women who served in every capacity in each of the services, from combat to logistical support. Each one had an interesting story to tell.
Having our members share their experiences can help your group gain a respect and understanding for service, and to learn valuable lessons in character and civic responsibility. Those who served during the Vietnam War are one of the greatest resources for understanding what happened during that tumultuous period.
The agenda is flexible and educational. A typical program includes each veteran's Road to Vietnam and his Tour of Duty and a question and answer period.
Chapter members have provided speakers for discussions at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (a/k/a The Wall) and in classrooms of Arlington and Fairfax County Public Schools, Trinity College, University of Maryland, George Mason University, and Northern Virginia Community College.
