History

Wounded soldier

We hope you enjoy¬†the “History” section. History is important. Recognizing what we have done in the past is a recognition of ourselves. By searching our past, we are searching how to go forward in our present life. This site offers much reading and research on Vietnam during its war years, as well as history on its development as a nation. You can read how its army was developed and how it fought. It includes a unit history of Marines, Army, Navy, and Air Force units that participated in the Vietnam War. A section is devoted to the Tet Offensive of 1968, one of the most misunderstood battles of the war. We plan to update this site regularly, so bookmark it and come back often. Please, sign our Guestbook and let us know who you served with and when. If you’re a student please let us know if this site was helpful to you in your research. Please visit the home page of Vets With A Mission and learn about the humanitarian work Vietnam veterans are doing in Vietnam.

“If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future.”

Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965)
