Our goals include:
- To help each other in our separate Company's
- To help other Vietnam Veterans
- To help other Veterans
- To help our community
- To educate the public about the true Vietnam Veteran
- To teach the young, so it does not happen again
- To be Proud to be in a free nation, under God.
We invite all In-Country Veterans who still remember the brotherhood we once had to re-light the fire.
The Vietnam Brotherhood was born to serve you, not for you to become a servant.
The Vietnam Brotherhood organization was founded by 5 In-Country Vietnam Veterans in 1998 as a Social Organization. The Brotherhood quickly gained members through word of mouth, small organized neighborhood parties and sporting events. Over the years, our involvement has grown and many events have now become part of the neighborhood.
