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 do not quite get the point or focus of the conference. As I am on a boat in the Med after retiring, I would be unlikely to be able to participate.  Perhaps you should send some more info.” --- Bill Bane, Sec. E

“Thank you for your efforts related to Vietnam Veterans.  I am very interested in participating in this conference.” --- Nathaniel Butler, Sec. F
