Episode 2584 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast will feature a story about the Texas Tech University Vietnam Center & Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive Day of Giving. The featured story comes from the Texas Tech University and the Vietnam Center & Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive.
For more than 30 years, the Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive has been collecting oral stories from those who participated in and were affected by both sides of the war in Vietnam including soldiers, family members and civilian volunteers. These interviews give researchers a firsthand look into the thoughts and experiences of those who lived during the Vietnam War era and allows veterans’ family members to listen to these moving stories in their loved one’s own recorded words.
The Virtual Vietnam Archive is the one of the most heavily used resources for the study of the Vietnam War in the world, used by researchers in over 160 different countries and searched over 68 million times since its creation. Gifts will be providing access to vital resources for an eager audience of researchers, students, veterans, and others interested in studying these materials and the Vietnam War.
On August 15 & 16, the Vietnam Center & Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive invites you to rally together with us for 1,923 minutes (signifying the founding year of our university) to support our Oral History Project.
This is a time-sensitive project. Our nation is losing more and more Vietnam veterans every day and we want to interview as many as possible before it’s too late and they are gone from us forever.
All Vietnam Veterans are encouraged to make financial donations and oral donations to this project.
Contact the Vietnam Archive at email@example.com or call them at 833-862-2688.
