Soldiers for Peace

Development of a one-hour radio documentary, a website, and public programs exploring the antiwar movement among Vietnam War soldiers and veterans during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

American Public Media’s documentary unit, American RadioWorks (ARW), requests a development grant of $75,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop Soldiers for Peace (working title), a one-hour, national public radio documentary, companion website and limited series of public events with a total project budget of $118,580. This groundbreaking project will explore the antiwar movement among Vietnam War soldiers and veterans in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Soldiers for Peace is in keeping with the Endowment's Standing Together initiative. This project will make extensive use of humanities themes and scholarship to help contemporary audiences, both civilian and military, better understand the experience of war and the return home. This is a timely topic, as in coming years the nation will mark the 50th anniversaries of events in Vietnam.
