Latest VASVW News!

VASVW has completed the transition from Yahoo! Groups to a privately hosted Forum. The Yahoo! Groups website is now gone.

We are up and running with the following websites:

VASVW Main: http://www.vasvw.org/

VASVW Forum: http://www.vasvw.org/forum

The Veterans Association of Sailors of the Vietnam War was established in August of 2008, so we are now approaching our third anniversary. During that period, VASVW has established a reputation of inclusion in decision making by all members, active grass roots legislative efforts, innovative methods of working with Congress, and a reputation for veracity, and integrity that Congress and other Federal Government agencies respect.

We have members from all branches of service, widows and survivors, and sailors who served in every type of ship and water craft during the Vietnam War. From Submarines to Aircraft Carriers, from Swift Boats to Destroyers and Cruisers, from Oilers and Ammo ships to Communications and Landing Ship Docks and from Sweeps to Coast Guard Cutters, we’ve served in them all.

Our current president, Roger Postera is a USAF Veteran who served in RVN, Thailand, and Korea during the Vietnam War. Four of our officers are wives or widows of Veterans.

Come join us and be an important part of something that will help Veterans. Join VASVW today! Go to http://vasvw.org/forum/member.php?action=register  and become of part of a difference maker in the lives of Veterans.

”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Obama Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
