Vietnam – West Virginians Remember is a documentary from West Virginia Public Broadcasting featuring the experiences of five West Virginia combat Veterans.
Per capita, West Virginians served the most and lost the most soldiers in Vietnam.
It lives on as America’s most controversial war – with questions unanswered, lessons not learned, and for veterans who survive, including thousands of West Virginians, haunting memories remain.
The broadcast of this feature was not available to TV viewers in Pocahontas County due to its location outside the FCC viewing area for West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
The Pocahontas County Veterans of America, working with WVPBS, will make available a local viewing of this very important documentary.
Pocahontas County, along with Webster County, had the highest per capita casualties of any county in West Virginia.
There will be two presentations of the documentary.
The first will be at the Pocahontas County Opera House, Thursday, October 19, and the second presentation will be at the Arbovale Community Center, Monday, October 23, beginning at 6 p.m. each night.
Doors open at 5 p.m.
Though this film is of importance to the veterans of the Vietnam War, family members and others are encouraged to attend.
