Viet Nam War Oral Histories 2012

In spring of 2012 students in Mr. Sylvester’s American Literature and Mr. Sultan’s US History courses interviewed seven people whose lives had been touched by The Viet Nam War in different ways.  As a part of this project the students, who are part of the AVID program, also read the book The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien.

Of the seven interviewees, two were Vietnamese citizens who lived through the war before immigrating to the US, and five were US military veterans. Below are links to all of the individual interviews.

    These interviews are interesting and well done. I am glad our youth are seeking out history of people rather than solely basing their knowledge on a book.
