The Vietnam War From The Perspective Of Soldiers
In these moving photos, the Vietnam War comes to life — from the perspective of the young soldiers who fought it. The collection was curated by Marissa Roth for the exhibit, “My War: Wartime Photographs by Vietnam Veterans,” on display for three months at The Highground, the memorial park in Neillsville, Wisconsin created by Vietnam veterans.
The photos are a deeply personal recollection of a controversial time in American history. Roth says that the photos “reflect the resilience of the human spirit. Despite their mission, they were still seeing beauty, still seeing poetry.”
