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 completed, they will be posted in the archives.
Former Congressman, William (Billy) Hendon (R-NC)
POW/MIA activist and co-author of the book, "An Enormous Crime, passed away on June 20, 2018. Billy was a remarkable representive in Congress and a good friend to many POW friends and families. His endless struggle to expose the truth cost him his health and welfare as many in the halls of Congress tried to bring him down, especially the late Sen. from Arizona, John McCain, and the former Secretary of State, John Kerry, among others who continually made Billy's life miserable. Billy Hendon spent nearly 4 decades working intensively to bring American POWs home from Vietnam. He was co-author with Elizabeth Stewart of the New York Times Best Seller: An Enormous Crime The Definitive Account of American POWs Abandoned in Southeast Asia. Billy also produced the You tube video, only a portion of his dedicated efforts which caused him severe financial distress. He persevered to the point that years of devotion to this pain-staking cause also affected his health. We owe it to Billy to make every effort to get the sealed/classified records of the returned POWs opened so that we can obtain information on those who were abandoned and, also on the collaborators, such as was the late Sen. John McCain, who basked in the reputation of hero/patriot and "war hero" when, in fact, he had maligned both his brothers-in-arms and those who begged truth on the issue. For his relentless devotion to the cause, and to truth and honesty in government, may Billy's soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. God Speed, Billy!
