Summary
This data collection probes the attitudes and opinions of American Vietnam-era veterans ten years after the close of the war. Respondents evaluated the degree to which their overall military experience affected them personally, the types of social, economic, and emotional difficulties they experienced after discharge, and the degree to which their difficulties lessened over time. This survey also examined the degree to which veterans endorsed the war and the military goals they pursued. Veterans who served in Vietnam were also asked about the frequency and type of wounds and injuries they received, their attitudes toward organized opposition to the war, their experience in situations in which Americans and Vietnamese were killed, and the impact of GI college benefits on their post-service experience. The data contain information on Americans who served their active duty in the United States Armed Forces between August 1964 and June 1975, including 811 veterans of the war in Vietnam and 438 veterans of the Vietnam era who served their active duty elsewhere. Veterans of Vietnam were asked a longer, more detailed series of questions than were other Vietnam-era veterans. Demographic information collected on respondents includes age, sex, race, marital status, educational attainment, number of children, and employment status....
