Presented by Audrey Coleman

Much of the Vietnam War story is yet to be told. Only now, as records are located, declassified, and cataloged, does a more complete story emerge. The United States had a presence in Vietnam as early as the 1950s and remained there until the dramatic evacuation of the American Embassy in 1975. The conflict's effects shaped a generation. This presentation features historic material from the archive of Kansas Senator Robert Dole, who served in Congress from 1961 to 1996. His collection documents the evolution of national policy, including his interaction with women instrumental in POW / MIA recovery efforts, and provides a window into American life during the tumultuous Vietnam War era.
