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?

To document how this turbulent time shaped life in the prairie region, Prairie Public and the State Historical Society of North Dakota has begun Prairie Memories The Vietnam War Years, 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.
