Vietnam Remembered Today provides a provocative look at how two brothers were in Vietnam at the same time yet their experiences were vastly different. Mark was in a support function while Don was fighting in the jungle. This narrative reveals the personal challenges of their service and represents many of the 2.6 million who served in Vietnam. * How we really go into Vietnam and what steps could have been taken a decade earlier to avoid it. * The battle in the Ia Drang Valley, led by General Moore and in the movie We Were Soldiers, dictated how both the U.S. and NVA conducted their fighting strategies. * Why the siege at the Khe Sanh was closely tied to the Tet Offensive. * How the My Lai murders, Hamburger Hill and the Cambodian bombings solidified the American public against the war. * The impact the Kent State shootings had on the war and the changes forced upon President Nixon. * Casualties of war: The numbers of those who died, and how the human suffering and cost to the nation remains to this day.
