How old were you when the vietnam war began? I was 3where did you live at that time? San Antonio, TEXAS
did you have family that had to go over and fight the war? No what was it like with all the protest going on around you?I just remember all the college kids protesting and people moving to Canada so they wouldn't have to be drafted
how did the media effect everything?it wasn't like it is today with our current war I don't think there was much coverage, course I was pretty young and not into the news.
did you ever get to go stand in the protest lines or know someone that did? no in your own words how did the vietnam war effect your life back then?I just remember being afraid for the young men who would have to leave their families to go and fight in the war and maybe die for their country. I remember being angry that we were getting involved in it because it wasn't even our war. I didn't understand why we had to send our boys over there to die. Does this help? Barbara These were my answers what are yours?
