Kansas Stories of the Vietnam War

Fifty years ago, Kansas soldiers joined the 2 million Americans serving in the escalating Vietnam conflict. We share some of their stories in "Kansas Stories of the Vietnam War," an oral history project sponsored by Humanities Kansas, in partnership with the David Woods Kemper Veterans Foundation, the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress, and the Veterans Voices Writing Project. Did you serve in Vietnam? Did a loved one? Kansas Public Radio encourages you to share your own Vietnam War memories on KPR's Facebook page.
