Welcome to the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association

The AVVBA was founded in 1981 to promote patriotism and sponsor activities of a patriotic nature among the business community; to recognize those who served and honor those who gave their lives in the Vietnam War; to promote the positive image of the Vietnam veteran, their dependents and the widows and orphans of deceased Vietnam veterans. AVVBA members look forward to meeting each month for fellowship and service to the veteran community.

Truths and Myths about the Vietnam War

“The Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association Foundation is proud to present a new 47-minute documentary film, entitled “Truths and Myths about the Vietnam War” with an introduction by actor Sam Elliott.

The purpose of this film is to honor those who served in the Vietnam War, by providing factual information to address the decades of misinformation that has presented a skewed historical perspective of the war. 

We believe this a very important and long overdue film, one that captures the information and lessons learned most Vietnam War veterans want reported about the war.

As Vietnam veterans, we consider this film to be our enduring legacy for future generations. To view or download this long overdue film, please click on the following link to the right.”

More AVVBA Stories From Vietnam

Building on the success of I'm Ready To Talk, the 2019 book with 160 personal stories from 100 members of the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association, I'm Ready to Talk Two covers 140 stories from 70 AVVBA members who answered our nation's call to fight in Vietnam between 1959 and 1975. Stories come from all branches of our military and cover the war from the Delta to the DMZ, as well as those who served in the waters of the South China Sea and flew from bases in surrounding countries.

Both books show the emotion, the good times and bad, the life-changing experiences that anyone with an interest in the Vietnam War will benefit from reading. If you wonder what your father or grandfather or others experienced in Vietnam, either of these books is a great place to start.
