Prairie Memories The Vietnam War Years


The Vietnam War defined a generation. It changed the lives of people who fought in it and who fought against it, leaving an indelible mark on millions of people. How has the Vietnam War made an impact on your life?

Share Your Story

To document how this turbulent time shaped life in the prairie region, Prairie Public and the Minnesota Public Television Association invite our viewers to add their stories to The Story Wall, a region wide initiative aimed at inspiring Minnesotans and North Dakotans to remember and share stories, recognize bravery, honor those lost, express reasons for dissent, and foster understanding of the lasting impact of war.

About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund

In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share. Click here for more information.

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in the Prairie Memories—The Vietnam War Years do not necessarily reflect those of the North Dakota Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
