VVnW is an adventure racing team consisting of a group of dedicated
athletes who share in a common mission:
1. To honor the veterans of our Armed Forces, past and present, for dedicating a part of their lives to the defense of our nation and its allies
2. To demonstrate by performance and example that no obstacle is so great that the human spirit cannot overcome it
3. To promote awareness of the goals and mission of the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc to the veterans of our Armed Forces as well as civilians and serving members of Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve Forces.
The team is comprised of Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve Service Members, Veterans, and family members of the above who share the common experience of service to our nation. Two of the team's members are currently deployed on a sustaining base mission in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
The Team competes in honor of all service members and all veterans, as well as to raise money for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and awareness for the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc.
The goal of the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc., the team's title sponsor, is to serve Veterans of not only the Vietnam Era, but anyone who served in the Armed Forces of the U.S. at any time; in the Armed Forces of Allied countries during the Vietnam era; civilians who served in Vietnam in support of the U.S. forces; and concerned citizens in support of all veterans.
