The Ohio Historical Society hosted The Wall that Heels and other events to mark the first Vietnam Veterans Day in Ohio. Ohio Government Television recorded several panel discussions with veterans. They are now available on The Ohio Channel web site.
Combat and Support Veterans
Panel discussion of both combat and support veterans who describe their experiences in the war. Panelists include Robert Dixon, John Mosure, and Robert Wagner.
Veterans who were prisoners of war describe their experiences. Panelists include Robert Doremus, Guy Gruters and Edward Mechenbier.
Female veterans describe their experiences in the Vietnam War. Panelists include Dorothy Gardner, Roberta Mershon, Mary Reynolds Powell and Linda Spoonster Schwartz.
The “In their Own Words” Oral History Project is recording and preserving oral history interviews with veterans. Several interviews with Vietnam veterans are currently available online in our digital library, Ohio Memory.
We thank the Vietnam veterans who have shared their stories in panel discussions and interviews. We also thank you for your service and your personal sacrifice.
