Extensive construction, orphanage, health education, and medical work in Vietnam.

Our History

A half-dozen Vietnam veterans, all Christians with the vision of Founder William Kimball, founded Vets With A Mission in 1989. Over the past twenty-eight years, VWAM has taken over 2,000 volunteers back to Vietnam on 76 teams assisting the church/Christians, orphans, veterans on both sides of the war through reconciliation, and the disadvantaged poor primarily through medical missions. Incorporated in 1989 as a 501 (c) (3) organization, VWAM is also a recognized NGO in Vietnam granted a permit to operate by the Vietnamese government.

Our Mission

VWAM is about reconciling the governments of Vietnam and the United States, the people of Vietnam to the people of America, veterans (ARVN & US) to veterans (VC/NVA), American veterans to their experience in Vietnam and most importantly – people to God. We went to Vietnam five decades ago to help the Vietnamese people, and we’re still doing that today.

Our Values

Founded on the scripture, II Corinthians 5:18 the “Ministry of Reconciliation,” VWAM is a Christian organization intent on sharing the Gospel through the deeds and actions of our humanitarian service. As Vietnam veterans, we are proud of our service during the Vietnam War, and committed to ministering to Vietnam vets and honoring their service and sacrifice.

Vets With A Mission - What We Do

Since 1989 Vets With A Mission has carried-out humanitarian programs, projects and ministry in Vietnam by taking over 2,000 volunteers and veterans back to the country. VWAM takes medical and training teams to Thua Thien Hue Provinces, and honors Vietnam vets at a team farewell dinner in Da Nang! It has built or sponsored nearly forty facilities including clinics, an orphanage, several education and health facilities, and sponsored a half-dozen different programs and special projects. Through its Children’s Heart Surgery Program, the next baby or child that receives a sponsored heart procedure in 2017 will be the 64th. Medical teams are for both health professionals as well as non-health volunteers. Vietnam veterans and repeat team members are given priority placement on teams. Team trips usually cost about $3,900 and last up to 17 days, with 7 days devoted to clinic service, and time given for R&R as well as touring possibilities. A typical team will see 1,000-1,300 patients in 7 days, and the team raises funds in advance of the trip to procure medicine, supplies and equipment in Vietnam. Areas to serve are Patient Examiners (MD’s, PA’s, NP’s, etc.), Patient Treatment (Eye, Dental, PT’s, etc.), Registration (Non-medical) & Triage (Nurses), Patient Services & Security (Non-medical) and Pharmacy (Pharmacist & non-medical). Interpreters are provided for all medical volunteers. As patients are worked-up and examined, VWAM is always looking for that “Special patient” that it can “Bless” with its resources and services.
