Dedications & Credits


Dedicated to Captain Raymond Gimmler, New York City Fire Department, who steadfastly crusaded to mobilize public support for those serving in our military during the Vietnam War.

In memory of Richard Piatkowski and Ron Melnyk, long-time Board members, who worked on this website project, but died before we finished the job.

It is impossible to list the thousands of Americans who volunteered to do the countless hours of tedious work necessary to turn ideas into huge events. They quietly came from the ranks of ordinary folks, who love their country – and, just as quietly, slipped away after they finished the job.
They’re awesome.
