A Call for Minnesota's Vietnam War Stories

April 25, 2017

Minnesota Remembers Vietnam

Veterans. Families. Protesters. Refugees. The Vietnam War left an indelible mark on millions of people. How has the Vietnam War impacted your life?

TPT and the PBS stations across Minnesota are seeking photos, video, audio and memories that will be displayed on an interactive Story Wall website, launching this Fall.

The Story Wall is a part of Minnesota Remembers Vietnam, a year-long, statewide initiative aimed at inspiring Minnesotans to remember and share stories, recognize bravery, express their reasons for dissent, and foster understanding around the lasting impact of war.

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s major new documentary series, “The Vietnam War,” is set to air on PBS stations this Fall. The 18-hour long film will be a national event that is certain to reopen discussion and debate about the costs of war and the experiences of those who serve.

Minnesota Remembers Vietnam will complement the PBS documentary with a rich collection of multimedia content for speaker, stage and screen.

The Vietnam War defined a generation. It changed the lives of people who fought in it and who fought against it. It’s time to remember, honor, and understand.
