Testimonials

“It was a WOW kind of day that I will never forget. We kept so busy that I never had time to get tired. Then when I did get in bed - I was still so excited that I couldn't go to sleep thinking about all that I saw. I just can't put into words how great that trip is.”

– Donald E. Albert

Vietnam War Veteran, US Army 1968-1971, 96th Mission - November 2, 2021

“In my 92 years of life, travels, and experiences, I have done a lot of things. In my humble opinion, this trip was A-1! Thank you for letting me ride along!”

– Robert L. Walkling

– Marshall Phillips

“I am so glad I went because getting these feelings out I believe will help me settle the Vietnam War that has been buried in my mind for 52 years. Over the years I have asked God how to deal with this issue and I believe he has answered my prayers through your organization.”
