On Veterans’ Day, we remember, honor, and thank all the veterans for their service and sacrifice. This year, FANHS Executive Director Dorothy Cordova, FANHS member John Ragudos (Vietnam War veteran), and the FANHS Greater Seattle Chapter initiated the FANHS Filipino American Vietnam Veterans Oral History Project to record and preserve the stories of Filipino Americans who served during the Vietnam War. This video is a 7-minute introduction to the many hours of video-recorded interviews that will be part of the FANHS archive. Thank you to the Filipino American Vietnam veterans for sharing your remarkable experiences — we have much to learn from you.
Here is a preview of new oral histories being recorded at the FANHS National Archives in Seattle. Please connect with us if you are a Vietnam Veteran or know Veterans who would be interested in our project.
