I'm going to write and post just a few articles and videos about the War and then let you, the reader, Share Your Thoughts. I'd rather let you and other Boomers tell your stories than give you a bunch of rehashed garbage you've been hearing all your life!

First is this link which will take you to the best slide-show overview of the war that I have found. I recommend starting with the first slide and then just clicking on "continue" until you've gone through it all.
