(Washington, D.C.) – As a leader in providing educators and students with resources to teach the history of the Vietnam War, Vietnam Veterans of America announces a new educational program. The “Interview a Vietnam Veteran On-Line Program” was initiated today on VVA’s website,, to meet the needs of students and educators. 

Over the past few years, the demand for interviews with Vietnam veterans by students, as part of their classroom assignments, has increased dramatically.  As the only congressionally chartered Vietnam veterans service organization, students and educators come to us for the answers.  Our Education Subcommittee developed a program to meet students’ needs.   

At no cost, VVA will match students and schools with local Vietnam veterans so that the student feels a personal relationship with the veteran.  For many students this is their first contact with a Vietnam veteran, and we want to make this a positive experience that provides personal and honest answers.  What better way to learn about the history of the Vietnam War than from those who lived it? 


Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) is the nation's only congressionally chartered veterans service organization dedicated to the needs of Vietnam-era veterans and their families.  VVA's founding principle is “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.”
