Biographical / Historical
Maryland Vietnam War Stories, 2013-2015 consists of 98 oral history interviews conducted for Maryland Vietnam War Stories, a documentary produced by Maryland Public Television (MPT) in 2016. The documentary tells the story of the Vietnam War through interviews with Maryland veterans of the conflict:
“MPT’s documentary comprises three hours of dramatic television as approximately 100 veterans tell the story of the war in their own words–sometimes heart-breaking but always insightful. Men and women reflect on their service...on stories of life and death, pumping adrenaline, and bittersweet moments...on their return home to an often-ungrateful nation...on life, 50 years later. It will make for a powerful and emotional television experience for our viewers, informing them of a tumultuous time in American history while allowing our region's Vietnam veterans a moment to share the feelings they have kept inside for so many years.”
The program originally aired over three nights in June 2016. The interviewees include veterans of the all four branches of the U.S. Military, the South Vietnamese Army, infantry, nurse corps, tank commanders, diving medical technicians, combat correspondents.
