Summary

In this companion to the Wisconsin Public Television documentary, forty veterans share their first-hand accounts of America's longest war in compelling detail alongside photographs, letters, draft notices, and telegrams. From barely legal sons of Wisconsin to seasoned soldiers, the men and women in these pages make up a diverse collection of voices: an army chaplain who led services at Khe Sanh but never picked up a weapon; identical twins who discover they are stationed at the same South Vietnam base; two prisoners of war whose years in captivity total 14; a Hmong refugee who fought the Secret War in Laos and repatriated to America; and dozens more.
