VWAM’s Children’s Heart Surgery Program (CHSP) will sponsor its 60th heart procedure/major surgery sometime in 2017. As patients are seen daily, VWAM looks for the “Special patient” that has a life-altering or life-saving health issue. That patient is selected based on several factors including financial, age, family and whether it’s life-threatening. All prospective special patients are prioritized and chosen based on need and availability of funds. Each team, in addition to paying for their trip, raise approximately $11,000 for medicines and $10,000 for surgeries including heart. If you want to help save a life by sponsoring a surgery or help VWAM to provide the medicines that are needed , click on the button below.

Vietnam vets served our country on land, sea and in the air to help the Vietnamese people. It was said, “We were the best and the brightest.” Well, we believe that is still true today. Vets return for a number of reasons including personal, religious/spiritual and humanitarian. Vets With A Mission is dedicated to reconciliation in helping Vietnam veterans and all veterans – even those of former South Vietnam, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong – to honor the past and embrace the future. Vietnam is no longer a war; it is a country. Since 1989 nearly 2,600 volunteers, both veterans and non-veterans, have traveled to Vietnam with VWAM. Now you can join us in making a difference in your life and the lives of others.
