Voices of Vietnam: Vietnam War Public Radio Series

More than 50 years after the United States first put troops on the ground in Vietnam, combatants and witnesses are coming forward to share their experiences. Virginia Foundation for the Humanities’ widely carried public radio show, With Good Reason (WGR), is requesting a production grant in support of a ten-part radio series on the people who lived the Vietnam conflict from many sides and perspectives, on a selection of themes, in their own words. The ten half-hour documentaries will be created by a team of award-winning radio producers over two years and will air on our network of more than 75 public radio stations. The series will be offered free to hundreds of other radio stations and made available online through iTunes and other podcast applications as well as the WGR website. Beyond those broadcasts, WGR will distribute via podcast in partnership with organizations that have veteran audiences and will create a teacher’s guide for use of this audio material in classrooms.
