Regarding Vietnam is a gathering place for personal stories and a forum for dialogues about Vietnam's legacy in our lives.

Stories can be found in two places:

The Stories page contains excerpts of selected stories and is changed regularly. Previous Stories pages are linked to the current Stories page.

Searchable archives contain the full text of everything on the Stories page, as well as everything submitted online (see below). If you're interested in seeing the full text of any excerpted story, go to Search and enter the last name of the person whose message you'd like to read.

Experimenting with different kinds of searches will yield lots of interesting combinations of stories. There are links to search tips and suggestions on the Search page.

Add Your Story

You can contribute your story in a variety of formats and media by fax, email, snail mail, telephone or right on this site. If you contribute using the online form on the Add Your Story page, your story, image, etc. will automatically be added to the site archives within 12 hours. New contributions are continually monitored and some will be selected for inclusion in the Stories page.


Anyone can post messages on the Dialog pages. There's a special page for stories about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
