the men and women who were very much a part of this organization
throughout the years. Everyone of them had a voice and spoke out
on the issues including POW/MIA and Human Rights for Vietnam.
All of them have earned their honorable place in NV&GWVC history.
Others not mentioned here are listed on some of the pages and
have given just as much to the causes for which we stand. May
God Bless them and may they be at eternal peace. We miss them
and will never forget them.
The memorial pages will be redone in good order. When they are
they will be posted in the archives.

The NV&GWVC is saddened to report that Sydney Schanberg
died today, July 7, 2016. Syd as some of you may recall was
a guest speaker at the Coalition Luncheon about 8 years ago.
Sydney unlike many of our politicians, like John McCain, was
an honorable man. When I last spoke to Syd, he indicated that
his sight was failing. We are grateful for Syd's dedication
in reporting on American POW-MIAs abandoned by our government
in Southeast Asia and in reporting on the Cambodians being massacred
by the Kymer Rouge He tried to help.
May he obtain a rich reward in eternity.
Diana West posted an article below as a tribute to him.
