The Red River Valley Figher Pilot's Association
We are an organization of military aircrew members, charted as an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. We are dedicated to providing a college education for the children of all military aviators killed in the performance of aircrew duties. Our origins are from the Vietnam War, and the name comes from the Red River that runs through Hanoi & Haiphong. Charter members are those that flew combat missions over the Hanoi/Haiphong target areas. The original organization was designed to assist the children of the aviators getting killed over North Vietnam. All of the Vietnam POWs are members of our organization, including a few Medal of Honor recipients.
