Welcome to the Vietnam Veterans Institute Website

"If we who served and those who were otherwise involved do not, through our words and deeds, challenge the revisionist history, a generation of young American fighting men will be forever denigrated and a vital chapter in our national history will be remembered erroneously." 

J. Eldon(Jer) Yates

Grandchildren of Vets & Family ]

This Veterans Day I mostly to want to assure the
Children and Grandchildren of Americans Vietnam
Veterans that their Fathers and Grandfather's served
honorably and heroically.
And that their treatment and vilification by the
Media and the "Left" upon their return was both
unwarranted and disgusting!
A Veterans Day never passes that I don't think of and
miss
my Dad. And my brothers.
Currently in our Family we have
20 living Veterans. 8 are women. Two of my Nephews
and I served In Vietnam at same time.
Proud of our family's service.

Denigrating our national Anthem is repugn ]
Posted: jeyates @ September/10/2016 01:41

Denigrating our national Anthem is repugnant! No white person got in the way of Kaepernicks' success. In fact his adoptive White parents had to have assured, with love, time and money that his talents were developed. I know several people that have had such talent, but were never given the support and encouragement to develop beyond the High school Friday night Lights...

If he wants to speak out for the down trodden or those unjustly treated that is positive. But vilifying and denigrating the Symbols of this Nation so many served and sacrificed to protect is the sophomore behavior of just another pampered, empty headed celebrity that never shed a drop of sweat, let alone a drop of blood to protect this nation and maintain our freedoms. The freedoms that have provided the opportunities that make it possible for them to gain wealth by tossing a ball or mouthing the words of others in some entertainment media. Most of them wouldn’t have the skill to manage a 7-11! They should stop drowning the airwaves with their thoughtless, inarticulate and spit!
