Welcome to the Vietnam Veterans Institute Website

"If we who served and those who were otherwise involved do not, through our words and deeds, challenge the revisionist history, a generation of young American fighting men will be forever denigrated and a vital chapter in our national history will be remembered erroneously." 

J. Eldon(Jer) Yates

This dedication is from Americas Vietnam Veterans to the
Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan- and all US Troops still
serving in those Theaters.
We will not let what happened to us happen to you!
Happy Veterans Day!

Home Depot and Lowes ]
Posted: jeyates @ November/10/2014 10:40

Home Depot and Lowe's determine that the Service of million of Vet’s is irrelevant!

The policies of Home Depot and Lowe's concerning Veteran's discounts have become particularly troubling.

 Businesses are quick to invoke the name of a Patriotic Holiday to sell their products -- to anyone.  It is this usury of Veterans and Memorial Day set aside to honor those served our nation, living or dead, that is demeaning to the service of American Veterans and the memory of those lost in battle.

Home Depot and Lowe's once had a policy that in a small way remedied such usury. They offered discounts to every Veteran every Day.

 Clearly it was to promote their products and put on a Corporate Patriotic face.  But at least, it did reinforce Military service and offer small thanks to Americas' Vets.

Now Home Depot and Lowe's have determined that for Veterans that do not have a service connect disability—their service is irrelevant!

Many Veterans serve for years and in harms way and do not sustain injury. This new policy reverses what was a refreshing acknowledgement of Military service to American and reduced it to just another attempt to falsely project a corporate image of patriotism.

Returning to the discount policy for all American Veterans policy will amount to millions of dollars in positive publicity and increase the long-term bottom line – of Home Depot and Lowe's.  If they are capable of such long-term goals. -- and a quality corporate conscience.

For anyone that hasn't figured it out -- we didn't serve, get maimed or killed so our countrymen could celebrate a mattress sale!

Profiteering from Veterans Day! ]

Remember Veterans Day Tuesday November 11.
For anyone that hasn't figured it out -- we didn't serve,
get maimed or killed so our Countrymen could celebrate
a mattress sale!
The retailers that use Veterans, or Memorial, day to
hawk their products are despicable!
The policies of Home Depot and Lowes particularly
despicable. They once offered discounts to every Veteran
every Day. Clearly it was to promote their products and
put on a patriotic face, but it did reinforce the service and
offer a small thanks to Americas Vets.
Now Home Deport and Lowes have determined that any
Veterans that do not have a service connect disability--
service is irrelevant!
