Vietnam Veterans from the Northland Share Their Personal Stories In Their Own Words

They were young, half a world away from home, and at war...

The Vietnam War was the most divisive conflict in American history since the Civil War. Even 50 years later, there are still open wounds that require healing. By hearing stories born in the Vietnam War we gain a deeper understanding about its impact on an entire generation and its lessons for today. WDSE • WRPT is working in collaboration with veteran’s organizations, community partners and the statewide Minnesota Public Television Association to find untold stories of those impacted by Vietnam War.

In addition to the new documentary, look for a rich collection of regionally gathered multimedia content and a series of community discussions that encourage and extend our community’s conversation about The Vietnam War.

  • Veteran Video Series: Powerful video portraits of Minnesota and Wisconsin Vietnam veterans, in their own words.
  • Digital Story Wall: Invites sharing and exploration of personal videos, narratives and photos shared by Minnesotans who fought in Vietnam and those whose lives it changed at home.
  • Community Gatherings: Series of events featuring screenings and community discussions.
