Education Section of the 11th Armored Cavalry Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia
Mission Statement: It is the intent of the education section of the 11th ACVVC to facilitate learning about the Vietnam War. This will be done by providing students, teachers and other interested parties access to information sources that will enhance learning with timely and accurate information concerning the history and events of the war. Methodology: Initially, various topics pertaining to the war will be given a brief summary that will be followed by a listing of sources for further research. It is hoped that in the future the education section will be technologically able to facilitate online dialogue in a question and answer format between researchers and personnel of the 11th ACVVC education team as well as rank and file members that may be called upon to provide anecdotal input. Hopefully the education section will also be electronically linked to other domains in the future to foster a flow of information in many directions.Please click here to enter the Education Section
"One of the greatest ironies of the Vietnam War is
that those still suffering most from that conflict are the ones who never served there.
While the overwhelming majority of Vietnam Veterans have long since returned to
civilian life and got on with their lives and careers, many of the draft dodgers and war
evaders still struggle with their consciences. Torn by guilt, they try to explain
their evasion by deliberately distorting what the war was all about. Most veterans
could care less about their posturing, but there is one fact that cannot be ignored.
In trying to make themselves look good, these shirkers must out of necessity make
those who did serve look bad."
Military Historian, Col. Harry Summers
" The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation "
