The Northland Vietnam Veterans Association is proud to announce the winners of the 2007 NVVA Scholarship. This year the NVVA offered four scholarships of $1000 each. As always, it was difficult to choose the winners. We believe that this year's winners showed great pride and emotion in their writings, a true gratitude and love for those who have fought and died.
