The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Paddle-out

Remember more than 58,000 men and women gave their full measure of devotion and paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War, and let us not forget the 150,000 who have committed sucide as a direct result of the war. In the spirit of the Hawaiian tradition, a ceremonial paddle-out is often performed by surfers who wish to remember and honor those who have given their lives. This paddle-out is in memory of those fallen heroes. All veterans who served in any location or capacity during the Vietnam War were encouraged to participate in this paddle-out ceremony. The public was invited to witness this special event and partake in all other associated activities to show support to our American heroes both then and now. This is a challenge to all Vietnam Veterans to come together and again remember our fallen. It is not for us. It is for them.
The purpose of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Paddle-out (VVMP) was to bring Veterans and the general public together to raise money to benefit all veterans through patriotic non-profit 501(C)(3) organizations such as: [ Freedom Is Not Free ], [ Fisher House ], [ Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund ], [ MCRD Museum Historical Society (Vietnam War Gallery) ], [ San Diego Veterans Memorial Association ] and [ Nice Guys of San Diego Victory Fund ].
Thank you for supporting The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Paddle-out
and the worthy non-profit organizations supporting our Military Service Members.
