  • March 25, 2021 | 16:32

A video created for social media by the Hampton Roads Naval Museum as part of National Vietnam War Veterans Day, which falls on March 29. Over 1.8 million Sailors served during the Vietnam War, and their role in fighting this war is often overlooked. This video offers a short overview of the Navy's role in Vietnam and incorporates oral history clips throughout, as veterans tell us their experiences in their own words. Always remember their contributions and their sacrifices. (US Navy Video by Laura Orr/Released).
