POW HEROES

there are 8.2 million "Vietnam Era Veterans," of these 2.59 million are reported to have served "in country." Today fewer than 900,000 are alive with greater than 400/day leaving us. More than 58,000 US personnel died as a result of the conflict.
Of those who served in country there are still 1,687 POW/MIA and to them we commit as

THE HONORED SITE ON THE BACK COVER OF THE CARD READS:

"You have not received your final recognition on the Memorial Wall, nor have we been privileged to welcome you back home; but you remain in our hearts, minds and prayers. We, the American people, commit to you that we will not cease demanding from Congress complete transparency of records, and a full accounting, for every American POW and MIA"

It is most important that all who sign THE CARD also check the POW/MIA Box.

    As a Vietnam vet myself, I remember that when we came back we were told to wear civilian clothes to avoid the protestors waiting at the airport. Compare that to the “Welcome Home” that the current war heroes are receiving. How sad. However, this organization is doing what others should have done many years ago – Thanking those who served and returned home. Thank you from our side for doing this. You are remarkable!!!!!

      Thanks Larry, We are excited about the opportunity to help so many other people recognize the inherent beauty of our national spirit – Nothing demonstrates the character of an American more than a willingness to set right a wrong. Such is the case involving Vietnam vets – Hopefully we are providing the opportunity to purge an ugly history while demonstrating the shared dignity of human concerns.
