Don Marsh

Don Marsh is a Denver, CO native who graduated from Westminster High School in 1964.  That summer he decided to start fulfilling his dream of seeing the great places he had read and learned about in school.  He contacted the local Air Force recruiter and that August was spent in basic training.

Eight years later he had completed a tour of Vietnam, spent a year in Korea, and had been temporarily assigned to Okinawa, Japan, and the Philippines.

Throughout his adult life Don had owned many motorcycles.  In 1999 he decided it was time to once again enjoy the freedom of the open road on two wheels.  He bought a Harley and met many new friends that shared a passion for riding.  He soon realized many of his new friends were Vietnam vets.

Don found that many of these vets were talking, amongst themselves, about their VN experiences.  This was a new experience for Don.  In 38 years he had never found anyone that really wanted to talk about those days. He found that the demons were coming out and even softening.

In 2010 he decided that he could and wanted to do more for Denver area Veterans.   He founded a new non-profit 501 (C) 3 organization called All About Vets (AAV).  AAV’s mission statement is:  Our mission is to provide support for, and promote awareness of, the needs of Veterans and their families, as well as the needs of those currently serving in the Armed Forces.  AAV worked with the Veterans Administration Selective Housing (VASH) program.  This program provided Denver area homeless vets a chance to get off the street and into apartments.  AAV then sought out donations of furniture, small appliances, bedding and non perishable food to help these vets.

Today Don remains very active in the Veteran’s community.  He hosts a Veteran’s web site (www.AllAboutVets.us),) and he continues to meet and befriend other Vets who are also active and standing up for their brothers and sisters.
