    I need a big favor from one of vietnam veterans. I'm courrently in college. I'm taking History of Vietnam War course. One of the projects is interview. If any of you guys who served in Vietnam could do interview with me I would be very thankfull. It will not be very long. I just have to ask about 10-20 questions. I would really appreciate if if any of Vet GT'ers would help me.
     
  2. Drop me an e-mail, if I don't think your questions are out of line I talked to you

    Could you e-mail me the questions? I sort of get choked up when I "talk" about Nam which isn't often.

    I served during the VietNam war but never went overseas. I'm sure you'll get some good responses from those who were there but I do have to comment on question #14.

    14. Did anti-war movement affect your and your comrades morale?

    Comrades? Who the heck chose that word?
