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.

“Good luck with your project.  Sorry I cannot attend.”--- Louis Iacovo, Jr., Sec. E

“Great project.  Good luck with it." --- Rob Hurless, Sec. C

“I thought B.G. Burkett covered the whole subject very well in Stolen Valor. I would have thought HBS would have stats on who used the GI Bill. “ --- John Reed, Sec. C
