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.

Steve -- I'll be happy to pledge $100. Only wish I were able to attend! -- Mark Marlin

I got shot at a fair amount, but never took a serious hit, and never in my entire 25-year career did I ever have to "bail out" (eject) form an airplane.  I was blessed, as many of my USNA Classmates perished in that war.     Good luck with your conference, I won't be able to make it, will be interested to see what your conclusions are.. --- Phil Rooney

Good luck with the conference.-- Chan Sweetser

I am in fact "terribly excited" about the concept.  [I am not a veteran] However, ... I know & knew many VN Vets, some of whom returned at least physically unscathed by the experience. -- Dave Phelan

I am uncertain whether or not I can attend, but I am interested in the premise.  The promotional materials announcing the conference, in my opinion, should speak to a number of the myths it intends to deal with.  -- Robert Bowman

I will look forward to reading the papers and following the progress of the conference. While I believe our perspectives differ, I wish you success with your endeavor. -- Tom Snyder '73

I’ll keep working the cranial archives and let you know if I think of others.-- Thomas E Hitchcock

I'm interested in the number you turned up that served in Vietnam. Other than the most casual references between between people who might have served in the military, I seem to recall that particular aspect being pushed way down the conversation list to non-existence. Thanks, -- Graham McFarlane


  The list above is, at this point, only an effort to identify the Vietnam and Vietnam Era Veterans in the Class of '73. It does not represent a pledge of sponsorship and/or endorsement. If you have any additional information to add, please contact Steve Sherman,
