Vietnam War Stories
Vietnam War veterans recount their experiences and reflect on their memories of the conflict from five decades ago. For many service members, these experiences still feel like they happened yesterday.
More than 100 veterans from all branches of the U.S. armed services were interviewed for the program. They share moving stories of triumph and loss in the field of duty, of sacrificing nearly everything on the battlefield, and of the strong bond of brotherhood and companionship in the ranks. Archival video, historical photography and maps evoke the stark imagery of the war alongside the veterans’ stories.
This is not the story of the Vietnam War, but of the men and women who went to Southeast Asia to serve their country. In the voices of a few resonate the stories — each unique, each profound — of the three million who served, the ones who didn’t return and those who passed away before their stories could be told.
