Voices of the Vietnam War: Enhancing Access to Oral History Interviews with Vietnam Veterans

Transcription and editing of 185 digitized oral history interviews of Vietnam veterans from all four branches of the service, civilian volunteers during Vietnam, and family members of veterans, and publication of word-searchable transcriptions to the Virtual Vietnam Archive. 

Funding to produce full, word-searchable transcripts for 185 oral history interviews (comprising approximately 725 hours of audio), which encompasses the Vietnam Center & Archive's (VNCA) entire oral history backlog. The transcripts will greatly enhance the discoverability and access to these interviews, which will give the public a greater understanding of the Vietnam War and the Vietnam generation. These interviews provide invaluable information about the individual experiences of the men and women who served in the war to include combat and non-combat veterans, service in all four of the major military branches, and experiences of life on the home front. Once completed, the transcripts will be made freely available in the Virtual Vietnam Archive, an online portal to the considerable digital holdings of the VNCA.
