Veterans of Vietnam MC HQ
October 4, 2010

We are the VOVMC Headquarters, and we are the only ones with 501c3 status approved by the IRS. The last entry made was written by a rogue past member who is very disgruntled about our advancements into a bigger and better organization. This gentleman was removed from our membership, due to non-compliance with board decisions. We are the one and only true Veterans of Vietnam MC.

The Great!

Missing In America - Veterans Recovery Program
March 9, 2010

Since being involved, I've seen the slow process of politics. Here in Colorado when the funeral homes were approached, they wouldn't even talk to us because of how the law was written. Even though the law stated "that the remains could only be released to a responsible party", the attorneys interpreted that to mean "only a family member". I had met and talked to Representative Don Marostica before, and approached him about getting the law changed. He was very helpful in getting this accomplished. About one year later the law was signed by Governor Ritter and took effect immediately. It now states "that the remains can be released to any Veterans organization", which we believe should be Ft. Logan. We have been trying for about one year now to get the funeral homes cooperation, but their lawyers are dragging their feet looking at it to make sure that they wouldn't be held liable in case of a law suit. We meet with the owner of one of the largest funeral Holmes here in Denver this week end to see if we can't get going on this. Hopefully the first time we can do an escort, and get some press coverage to help get the word out about MIAP. We have a scheduled service the second Saturday of each month that covers all of the unclaimed remains that come into Ft. Logan each month, so after the initial escort, and hopefully press coverage, these unclaimed remains will start to come in each month and be covered by this service, so they all get the Honors that they so much deserve. It's been slow but hopefully all of our efforts will pay off soon.
