Vietnam veterans should be proud of their service in Vietnam, as Vets With A Mission is proud of its continuing service there and to Vietnam veterans here. It’s not about the Vietnamese government, but helping “the people.” And if you were one of those who did not serve in-country as a Vietnam Era veteran or a non-veteran, you are welcome to join us in this noble endeavor. VWAM is not a tour company but a Christian ministry and humanitarian organization. VWAM is humbled by the testimonials graciously given by trip participants following their amazing trip with us. Supporting this organization, participating in this ministry, returning to Vietnam as a volunteer, touring the country and visiting those places of your youth, all of this is part and parcel of an incredible journey awaiting you if you decide to join us.

HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Vietnam vets served our country on land, sea and in the air to help the Vietnamese people. It was said, “We were the best and the brightest.” Well, we believe that is still true today. Vets return for a number of reasons including personal, religious/spiritual and humanitarian. Vets With A Mission is dedicated to reconciliation in helping Vietnam veterans and all veterans – even those of former South Vietnam, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong – to honor the past and embrace the future. Vietnam is no longer a war; it is a country. Since 1989 nearly 2,500 volunteers, both veterans and non-veterans, have traveled to Vietnam with VWAM. Now you can join us in making a difference in your life and the lives of others.
