Veterans Voices

On this Veterans Day take time with your students or children to share some voices of soldiers who fought and died in Vietnam. This is a compelling story using old reel to reel recordings of a US Marine in the Vietnam War. Note: You can stop playing at 7:46 and still have a very good sense of the story.
