vietnam war veteransThank you for visiting Viet Nam Veteran’s Site. This site was designed to commemorate the thousands of men & women who served their country through their involvement in what many have called “the most unpopular war in American History.”

The People’s Army of Vietnam (a.k.a. the North Vietnamese Army) engaged in a more conventional war, at times committing large units into battle.
