Veterans History Project Video Series – Vietnam Veteran Ronald Britton [VIDEO]
Here is this weeks Veterans History Project interview with Sgt. Ronald Britton. Mr. Britton saw a side of Vietnam during the war that most never saw, but it’s the last 5 minutes of the interview that nobody saw coming.
Mr. Britton has a fascinating story in that he was not only a combat veteran of the Vietnam war, but during the last six weeks of his tour, he was asked to do something that nobody had ever really done. He not only saw the atrocities of the war, but also captured a side of Vietnam that hadn’t been documented before and his work can still be seen today at the Library of Congress. Click here to see what he saw through his eyes.
As interesting as his story is, it was the last 5 minutes of our interview that none of us in the room saw coming, and I’m not sure Mr. Britton saw it coming either. The last 5 minutes were some of the best minutes I’ve ever had the privilege of being part of.
If you, or someone you know, would like to share your/their story, I would love to sit down and record it for future generations to see as these videos will all be submitted to the Library of Congress as part of their Veterans History Project. Any veteran is elgibile and I will set interviews with the following priority:
- Terminally ill from any conflict
- World War II
- Korean War
- Vietnam War
- All current/modern conflicts
