Vietnam Voices is an oral history in the spirit of Terkel's oral history of World War II, The Good War. The reader gets the real Vietnam experience from the personal narratives of servicemen who served in America's longest war. The veterans narrate their reminiscences about the time before their entry into the service and what it was like to be in the military knowing that they would be sacrificing the next two or more years of their lives for their country. The veterans tell about their duties in Vietnam, from being a helicopter pilot to running a base camp beer garden. This work is important because it allows the veterans to tell their stories about life before, during and after their service in Vietnam.
