Vietnam Vets Donations

Many veterans believe that they were considered failures when returning from Vietnam, and the government and wider society did little to help them reintegrate with society. Many of these young men had missed out on the end of the childhoods, being thrust into war at 18 and returning with no real idea about how the world worked. Many, of course, had the support of their families and friends and have gone on to live fulfilling, healthy, and successful lives. Others can safely be referred to as 'forgotten men'. It was Vietnam war veterans who were most vocal in voicing their discontent at the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with none of them wishing upon the younger generations the problems bestowed on them. There are many organisations out there who have for decades attempted to do what the various American governments and wider American society have largely failed to do, simply help them overcome their problems. Here are a selection of legitimate registered charities that do what they can within the limits of funding received through donations:

Vietnam Veterans of America Inc. - VVA is a not-for-profit organisation which was founded in 1978 and is the only congressionally chartered organisation which is exclusively dedicated to Vietnam-era veterans and their families. It has 630 local chapters, 46 state councils, and some 50000 members. Its seeks to provide full access to quality healthcare, and lobbies on all issues affecting veterans. It also works hard to create a more positive public image of Vietnam veterans in America, whilst its founding principle is "Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another." You can donate via their website or via the Vietnam Vets Donations links provided below.

 Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund - The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund was established with the primary purpose of bringing overdue honour and recognition to those who served and lost their lives in Vietnam. Since 1982 more than 80000 items have been left at 'The Wall', a major war memorial erected in the honour of the fallen troops from money raised through this fund. They still require donations from the public for the ongoing upkeep of the wall, which is often used for reconciliations and reunions, whilst the organisation is also hoping to raise funds to build an education centre at the wall. You may donate on their website, or via the links provided below.
