VOICE OF VIETNAMESE AMERICANS' STATEMENT IN OBSERVANCE OF MEMORIAL DAY
Memorial Day gives all Americans the opportunity to honor those who have laid their lives on the line to serve our country. VVA joins all Americans in proudly standing up for America’s fallen soldiers today to pay tribute to their commitment and service to this great nation. They served and fought on behalf of our freedom and our security.
Generations of Vietnamese Americans found their way to America to rebuild their lives in a land of freedom, opportunity and other cherished values, and today, we express our greatest respects to our nation’s bravest soldiers who served to defend and preserve these values for all Americans.
Voice of Vietnamese Americans stands in solidarity with our soldiers to promote, protect, and defend the American values: that of democracy, liberty, and equal justice for all.
Together with all Americans, Voice of Vietnamese Americans and its members extend our deepest gratitude to all active troops, veterans and America’s fallen soldiers from across the country for their admirable commitment to our nation.
The mission of Voice of Vietnamese Americans is to empower Vietnamese Americans by promoting civic engagement through community organizing and capacity building. Voice of Vietnamese Americans enhances, defends, and protects the American core values of human rights, civil rights, democracy, liberty, and justice for all.
