The Vietnam Center and Archive strives to collect and provide free and open access to a full history of the Vietnam War. In order to achieve this goal, we collect materials that represent all aspects, all viewpoints, and all sides of the war. Some of those materials contain foul language, derogatory terms, and objectionable material and images, which some people might find offensive. While we are committed to providing patrons with access to all materials in our collections, the views contained within those documents are those of the authors and do not reflect those of the Vietnam Center and Archive or Texas Tech University. We provide access to these historical records as an unvarnished representation of wartime events and we do not edit or sanitize historical materials to align with any viewpoint. We believe strongly in promoting candid discussion and scholarship of all aspects of the Vietnam War, even if it means including materials that we personally find objectionable.
