Utah Vietnam War Stories - Part Two: Turning Point
Turning Point, the second in a three-part series, is a compelling oral history of the pivotal moments in Vietnam during and after the Tet Offensive of 1968. Utah's veterans reveal penetrating stories of the psychological effects of combat. Helicopter pilots vividly describe the challenges of flying forces in and out of hot landing zones. Utah's medics and nurses speak of working tirelessly to save lives, and the day-to-day struggle to survive becomes the only mission for one Utah prisoner of war.
In Turning Point, Utahans remember the veterans who served in a complex time of anti-war sentiment, when the world seemed to spin faster and life was held together by a slender thread.
