With the Marines in Vietnam Part 1: Boot Camp DVD

The Vietnam War is one of the most controversial events in American history, yet most Americans today know very little about it. To understand what happened in Vietnam, we need to turn to those who served there to learn about their actual experiences. This video is the first episode in a series produced by the GVSU Veterans History Project that follows the stories of twelve Marine Corps veterans who served in Vietnam over the course of the war. These men came from different backgrounds, enlisted for different reasons, and had often widely different experiences in Vietnam, but all shared one common experience that serves as the focus of this opening episode--they all survived Boot Camp and emerged as Marines.
