Fifty years ago the U.S. was massively escalating the war in Vietnam. Recently the Pentagon launched an expensive propaganda campaign to whitewash what really happened and to glorify the Vietnam War as a noble effort. The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s May 2016 TV program counters that with truthful information that the Pentagon does not want you to know.
Two guests – Larry Kerschner and Mark Fleming – help us explore this topic. Both guests served in the U.S. army in Vietnam. Both went back to Vietnam recently for peace-related purposes. Both are active with Veterans for Peace (VFP) and with the Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation.
During this 1-hour interview, Mark and Larry discussed the Pentagon’s propaganda campaign to whitewash the war in Vietnam and SE Asia and Veterans For Peace’s response, which is VFP’s “Full Disclosure” campaign. VFP’s national website is www.veteransforpeace.org and Olympia’s chapter is at www.vfp109rcc.org VFP’s “Full Disclosure” campaign has the website www.vietnamfulldisclosure.org
