Joe Lewis, VietNow National PresidentJoe Lewis, our new VietNow National President, is a long-time member of VietNow, and has been active in veterans’ causes for well over 40 years.

Compared to the mega-veterans organizations, VietNow is small enough so that our officers, including the National President, are on a first-name basis with a big percentage of members – our officers are not just names on an organizational chart – they’re real people. And Joe Lewis is approachable any time a member has a question or a problem. Running an organization like VietNow isn’t easy, but Joe works hard, and his heart is strong for veterans.

Be sure to read his article in every issue of the magazine, and you’ll see what we mean. And you can read Joe’s blog right here.
