Hello everyone! I’ve collected various YouTube videos about the Vietnam War for the last few years and decided to pull the best 40+ and post them here together on the same page of my blog. Some authors created slide shows with pictures set to music of the period (1 is current), others used actual video footage to music and a couple published documentaries. Click on any to watch as you scroll through the embedded players. If You Served – Thank you and Welcome Home!
Please click on the link at the bottom to tell us which is your favorite video. Additionally, feel free to leave any comments or mention of other “great” videos that I may have overlooked. Enjoy!
