I'm a sophomore at the College of William and Mary and I'm doing
a research paper called "Did the media lose the war for us in Vietnam?"
I'm trying to get many different perspectives about the media's influence
because I obviously didn't live through it to have personal feelings of
my own. I would appreciate any personal thoughts, especially those of
vets. To the vets: Did the negative media coverage at home personally
influence you and your role in Vietnam and how do you think the media, if at
all, affected the strategy and eventual outcome of the Vietnam War. Any
thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.....Lindsay
