Less than 850,000 are estimated to be alive today. The American Vietnam Veteran’s age is about 60 years old.
Unfortunately, many Veterans have not applied or received the VA Veterans benefits they earned. My recommendation is to find a certified VA ADVISOR to get help in filing your claim for VA BENEFITS.

VIETNAM WAR BACKGROUND
Just in case you forgot. The Vietnam War lasted 15 years,
the cost was exorbitant. This divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. All together over 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) lost their lives in the Vietnam War.
Half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. The opposition to the war-divided Americans. The Vietnam War ended when President Richard Nixon
ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973.
