TOP (Tours Of Peace) Vietnam Veterans is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, created in 1998 for helping veterans and families throughprograms associated with Tours Of Peace.
TOP enables those impacted by war to move forward. Our Tours Of Peace include spouses, children and relatives of veterans, and those killed in action. Our logo colors are blue & green, symbolizing hope.
During the Vietnam War, the time a soldier served in Vietnam was called a “tour.” Today, the time veterans and families spend in Vietnam with TOP is a “Tour Of Peace.” Through revisiting the country where it all began, seeing Vietnam as it is today, and helping others in the process, the healing begins.
The Foundation is comprised of five programs: Veterans, Family, Humanitarian, Personal Effects, and Education. The programs are a result of our Tours Of Peace trips.
Our approach to veteran & family recovery integrates emotional and humanitarian components. Participants revisit old military sites of personal meaning, and conduct humanitarian projects nearby. By helping others, we help ourselves.
