Abstract

Having developed a deep passion for the Vietnam War, this project was born with the hope of telling a narrative of the men of a single military company in Vietnam between 1969 and 1970. Oral history interviews were conducted with several members of Bravo Company 4/23 of the 25th Infantry Division. They told their stories bravely, opening up a narrative of the Vietnam War that starts with the draft and walks readers through the antics and the struggles of war. The interviews have been refashioned as a threaded narrative with the hopes of leading readers into a deeper understanding of what it was like to become an American soldier in Vietnam and bringing to light the deeply traumatic memories our veterans still face today.
