About Vietnam Vet Radio
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. United States Declaration of Independence
ministry: n. The act of serving
Vietnam Vet Radio is a unique one-of-a-kind internet radio station in that it is a non-traditional ministry to Vietnam War Veterans, their families, and friends. Vietnam Vet Radio believes, as did the founders of this great country, that Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness is a God-given right to every human being. Veterans of the Vietnam War, during their service in-country and upon returning home, were generally looked upon as less-than-deserving of that right. As a result a spiritual battle has been going on in the minds and hearts of a great many Vietnam War veterans; a struggle that has lasted for decades and continues to affect, not only the veteran, but family and friends as well.
Bennie P. Blount, founder and manager of Vietnam Vet Radio, is an ordained minister and fellow Vietnam War veteran. He was ordained in a small rural Baptist church, Bethel Baptist Church in Prescott, Arkansas, in 1978. It is not the plan of Vietnam Vet Radio to teach or promote any denominational doctrine or religious creed. Rather, we believe that by helping to restore the dignity and respect of Vietnam Veterans we can bring Life, Liberty, and Happiness in its fullness to every Vietnam War veteran. We do this, not by traditional preaching and teaching. We do this by presenting positive dialog and playing the music we all enjoyed in the days of our innocence. Joy is a gift from God. Our goal is to bring that gift to every Vietnam Veteran.
