I am a college student taking a course on The Vietnam War. The course covers everything from America’s first involvement in French Indochina to the similarities/differences between the war in Vietnam and the current war in Iraq. The class requires that I interview a Vietnam veteran and compose an oral history paper on said interview. If anyone is interested in being interviewed and sharing their story I would appreciate the chance of learning from someone first hand rather than reading from a textbook. I will endeavor to tell your story to the best of my ability.
You can reach me via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org . The questions will mostly be just what was your unit, service length, area of operation during Vietnam, and experiences both during and after the war ended. I am really looking for how Vietnam changed your life for good or bad.
