Although the Vietnam War ended only thirty years ago, it has become ancient history to students of the current generation, the millennials. The term millennial refers to those people born between 1980 and 1990. As students and American Citizens we deserve to know and need to know about the Vietnam War, especially since we are currently involved in a war that has been paralleled to Vietnam in the media. As young adults, we are constantly reminded that we are the future. Consequently, as the future, we must first be aware of our past.
