The Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc. (VVnW), a Veterans benevolent organization founded in 1978, was born out of a need to have the service and special needs of Vietnam War Veterans recognized and acknowledged. Traditional Veterans organizations were unwilling to accept the service of Vietnam Veterans, as well as Veterans of other eras.
Today, VVnW is comprised of 90 posts worldwide sustaining the mission of the organization. VVnW continues to strive through its many programs to maintain, improve, preserve and defend the quality of life of all veterans and their families.
VVnW programs include the United Veterans Beacon House a transitional homeless veterans housing and reintegration program, Military Support Package Project for military serving overseas and Support Packages to veteran families, Veteran Service Officers (VSOs), Incarcerated Veterans for Veterans in conflict with the law, Team Veteran Leader a competitive military adventure racing team plus Veteran information services, casework assistance, counseling resources and referral, 24-hour 1-800-VIETNAM phone line, Veteran Leader magazine, VVnW websites, Education and Scholarship Programs, FIND-A-VET Locator program to help reunite Vietnam era veterans, Flag Awareness and community services.
VVnW is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(19) non-profit veterans service organization with a Federal ID #23-2151579 and manages the Veterans Fund of the United States with an IRS determination of 501(c)(3) and Federal ID #23-287794.
