REMEMBERING



In 2008, Congress created a 13-year, $5-million-per-year propaganda project to clean up the image of the Vietnam War. It's called The Vietnam War Commemoration Project and it focuses on issues of individual honor and bravery. It avoids the controversial historical and moral issues of the war. In response, a number of Vietnam veterans have created The Vietnam War Commemoration CORRECTION Project as a provocation to open discussion as to what the Vietnam War means to Americans. Was the war even necessary? 

In 1945 did the US, in fact, betray its World War Two Vietnamese ally -- the Vietminh under Ho Chi Minh -- in order to support a continuation of French Colonialism in Vietnam? Many Americans feel the Vietnam War was a tragic debacle that still divides Americans.

The Pentagon "commemoration" of the war comes up far short of what is best for the future of America in a changing world. This short film is meant to raise questions. To contact The Correction Project, email us at namcor@midcoast.com
