War Stories and Historic Presentation Forums:

We now have new traditions at reunions presenting historic presentation forums of professional talks on Vietnam War topics and a more light-hearted War Story Contest where members tell their best stories for fun and glory.  For more information about the events and the DVDs that are available go to  2006 DVD, 2007 DVD, 2008 DVD, 2009 DVD, 2010 DVD, 2011 DVD, 2012 DVD and 2013 DVD .  These events are very popular so please let us know if you would like to participate.

Note to VHPA members:  If you or someone you know has a relatively professional presentation on a topic of interest to VHPA members related to the Vietnam War, we encourage you to submit the information ASAP.
