Creating Leaders, Teachers, Advocates
Giving back to America's greatest Vietnam War allies:
Those students are now doctors, nurses, engineers and teachers.
Tommy's memory lives on, and lives are changed because of his will to make a difference for people who gave so much to our country in time of war.
Thanks to Tommy's fearless and determined efforts, Cambodia Corps is now a solid non-profit organization, dedicated to the education of the youth in Cambodia, who would have otherwise been hopeless.

Mission Statement/ Vision Statement
To educate poor Montagnard youth through scholarships,
helping the Montagnard help themselves.
A Montagnard Community with an equal voice, able to determine their own future.
Some 61,000 Montagnards, out of an estimated population of 1,000,000, were used as surrogates for US forces and fought alongside the Special Forces in epic battles. In doing so, they rescued countless Americans, including pilots, crews, and others. More than half of the Montagnards' adult male population was lost fighting with and for the Americans. Without their sacrifice, there would be many more names on that somber black granite wall in Washington DC -- the Vietnam Memorial.
Changes have happened more rapidly in the last five years than in the past 100 years!
