Second Voice For Children of Vietnam Veterans, Inc
Second Voice For Children of Vietnam Veterans, Inc. is a nonprofit public benefit corporation 501 (c)(3). We started as a Yahoo! support group in 2003 to bring awareness and support to veterans still fighting the battles and system as well as children watching helpless, frustrated and becoming sick themselves.
We support and advocate for all veterans of all wars, families and children.
Second Voice provides education, advocacy, support and fundraising for needs of members, including veterans, children, loved one’s and the organization as a whole, as well as support leadership in legislation and laws affecting the veteran and child.
When this was started by the child of a deceased Vietnam Veteran as a support group on Yahoo!, many were in desperate need and disbelief at the rate of ill children that were the offspring of Vietnam Veterans. IN my search for answers and the devastating death and discrimination I witnessed at the hands of the medical community towards my father, I set pout to do good with my anger and grief. We are now a nonprofit and continue our research, support and advocacy.
