Thuy Smith International
Our tribute is to all the Vietnam Era Veterans
Each person served their country and did their duty. Many Vietnam Era Veterans did not serve in Vietnam, but your service to your country was very important and is also greatly appreciated. We also want to honor the Hmong and Vietnamese Veterans.
This Tribute is not about the war itself for there is never any glory in war. Our emphasis is about the men who had done their duty at the time; and to honor them for what they are doing today both in the United States and in Vietnam. This is what we pay tribute to, this is what we honor.
This Tribute is also to put a face to who our Vietnam Era Veterans are, an educational platform, and a bridging of the gap between the veteran and non-veteran community.
Proud Daughter of an American Vietnam Veteran
“In our desire to express our frustrations with the conflict in Vietnam, we targeted our young
men who served there.
In a very real sense, we did not separate the war from those
who fought it".
“The least any of what these men did was their duty and for this they should be proud.”
