Vietname Unchronicled

The Vietnam War left an indelible impact on our military, history, and culture. Some stories from this period are part of our national consciousness, but not every story remains in the spotlight. To recognize the 50th anniversary of combat winding down in Vietnam, we will share some of the stories that have, for the most part, slipped through modern cultural cracks. They are not meant to tell the whole story — but to add information and insight. These stories first appeared in Military Officer magazine. Photo: Bettman/Getty Images
