Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Philip Napoli. I am an assistant professor at Brooklyn College. I am looking for Vietnam veterans and/or their family members from New York City who would be willing to participate in an oral history project. This oral history aims to supplement the "official" record of events with the memories of the little guy, the person who did not necessarily make the big decisions, but was affected by them anyway, and saw the influence of the War on the City.
I am interested in talking with veterans, of course, but also the husbands, wives, parents, brothers and sisters whose lives were changed by the events surrounding the Vietnam War, and would like to talk with you.
I have collected approximately 83 interviews from Vietnam Veterans all over New York City, and would like to find another 20 volunteers willing to sit and talk with me. Any assistance you can provide will help to preserve the memories of our Vietnam Veterans.
For more information you can call us at 718.951.4539, during our office hours on Tuesday, Thursday 9-4 or email us at email@example.com.

I served in the 101st, HHQ CO. 1970-71 as an Air Traffic Controller out of Eagle Tower and spent a few months at Khe Sahn during Lom Sahn 719 with the GCA unit. Recently I was searching for something and came upon just these few lines from this site:
"My dad was in Vietnam and died when i was 2. I would like to learn ... After a short
time training as an air traffic controller at HHQ 101st Airmobile Division ... "
I could not find anymore than that even after I searched the entire site, which by the way looks great. Hopefully someone can connect the dots because I would really like to read the entire post.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Part two, I just wanted to say a couple of more things,. I think that if you had the courage to fight and possibly die ''for'', another persons freedom, and liberty, you are the bravest of them all,. Thank you, and welcome home, one and all,. Second, you and I did not lose that war. Our country and people stopped supplying us, and were no longer committed to helping the South Viet Namese, or us,. As warriors, and as people you are the best I've every known,. The truth may never be made public, and has yet to be made into a movie,.
So, we remain as we've always known,. They stopped spitting on us,. I suppose we should be thankful for that,. May your last twenty-five years be better than your 1st twenty- five years,. And may the best be waiting in Heaven,. Thank you veterans one and all,. J.W.

Served with the 390th TFS @ Da Nang 1970-1971. Glad to see an outfit dedicated to healing, restoration and renewal for the people of Vietnam. I never could understand how they could still smile while a war was going on all around them, as though it were a normal part of every day life. Thanks
