I believe the number of Vietnam Veterans who went through the "West Point of Capitalism" would surprise even those of us among that number. Quite some time ago, I posed the question to HBS and got the response shown here. I am proud of both my Vietnam service and of my Alumni status from HBS. I believe that the demonstration of this factoid helps put the lie to the stereotypical image of the Vietnam veteran. When I thought of funding the program in this manner (I didn't want to be accused of being funded by the Republican campaign), I didn't realize how large the pool actually was. Having done the initial survey, we have kept the pledge level low in the hopes of getting a high rate of participation. Please complete the census, make your pledges and encourage your classmates to do the same.

“I will support it.  My recollection is that we had at least two other Vietnam vets in my section.  Incidentally, our daughter is a Marine 1st Lt married to a Marine Captain...so the tradition of citizen soldier continues.” -- C. L. Gildroy, Sec. C

“This is a very intriguing initiative.  To answer your questions, I split my years at HBS to serve in the Army from 1968-71.  Though I was against the war (politically), I was prepared to go to Vietnam but never did.  Instead, I served in Germany for 2+ years.
Since the work I do (ministry) is not lucrative, I am not going to offer financial support for your enterprise; but I am sympathetic to the desire to rehabilitate the image of the men who served in Vietnam and do hope your conference works well.” --  John Ratichek, Sec. D
