Oral History Department at Texas Tech University's Vietnam Center and Archive seeking Vietnam Veterans to participate in Oral History Project

Oral History Project Information (click here)

The Vietnam Center & Archive Information (click here)

     Since 1999, the Oral History Project at the Vietnam Center and Archive has been conducting interviews with those who experienced the war, and who lived through the era. We believe it is vital that any true understanding of the war must include the input of those who participated in this historic moment. We strive to include all voices, including both military and civilian personnel who were in Southeast Asia and at support facilities world-wide. 

     It is essential that we continue to reach out to war veterans and wartime civilians in both the U.S. and Vietnam to capture their recollections for use by researchers, as well as for anyone who is interested in a more thorough understanding of the Vietnam War.  It is imperative that we record those voices before time takes them away, leaving future generations without that vital personal connection to one of the 20th Century’s most controversial, tragic, heroic, and enduring events. 
      Please help us preserve your history by participating in the Oral History Project at the Vietnam Center and Archive.  Visit:  http://www.vietnam.ttu.edu/oralhistory/ for more information.
