Dear Vietnam Vet (DVV) is a letter-writing campaign with the goal of getting a letter of thanks into the hands of every Vietnam veteran. The Vietnam War was long, expensive, and unpopular. Veterans returning home weren’t celebrated; they weren’t even thanked for their service. We believe it’s long past time to do so.
