Iowans Remember Vietnam
Iowans Remember Vietnam examines one of the most turbulent times in American history from the perspective of those who were there. This Iowa PBS-produced documentary also chronicles the simultaneous battle at home, where thousands of young people took to the streets to demonstrate their strident opposition to the war. Iowans Remember Vietnam explores the causes – and outcomes – of both conflicts. From the first U.S. advisors in Vietnam; through the deployment of combat troops; to the fall of Saigon; Iowans Remember Vietnam counts the cost of an often misunderstood conflict, in which 115,000 Iowans served their country and 859 made the ultimate sacrifice.
Major funding for Iowans Remember Vietnam was provided by Casey’s General Stores; additional funding provided by Prairie Meadows.
