Reflections of Vietnam
Our Chapter offers Educational Experiences

VVA Chapter 351 owns and maintains a trailer that contains displays, uniforms, and artifacts related to the Vietnam War. We travel to and set up the displays at high schools, businesses, and other venues between 10 and 20 times throughout the year. We invite questions and discussion and provide hands-on involvement relevant to the Vietnam experience.

If you would like more information or want to schedule “Reflections of Vietnam” for a future date at your facility, contact John Koehler at either (920) 858-3310 or for more details. This process can require long-range-planning; the schedule for the following year is generally filled by December.
