VIETNAM WAR FOUNDATION

(VWF)

 

The Vietnam War Foundation (VWF) is a non-profit, public educational foundation filed under 501(c)(3) of the IRS. The Foundation is dedicated to presenting the Vietnam Era story to schools and the general public through narration and static displays of actual equipment used by the men and women who served in VN during the 10 years of conflict.

This mission is accomplished through the acquisition, restoration and maintenance of historic vehicles (trucks, aircraft, jeeps, APCs, etc.), VN era memorabilia, “VC” artifacts, weapons, and civilian and “peace” symbols of the Vietnam Era. The VWF provides school children and the general public the opportunity to hear its veterans share their stories and see its military legacy.
