Footnote.com and National Archives (NARA) Release New Viet Nam War Photos and Records

From an E-Mail and Blog Post:


Today Footnote.com announced a major addition to its Vietnam War Collection: Army Photos and Unit Service Awards. Now totaling over 100,000 photos and documents, this collection helps visitors gain a better perspective and appreciation for this often misunderstood event in U.S. History.

“Our partnership with the National Archives has proven to be invaluable as we work to make these records more accessible,” explains Russell Wilding, CEO of Footnote.com. “Previously you were required to travel to Washington, D.C. to see these records. Now anyone can access the original records through the internet.”

Army Unit Service Awards include documents relating to Presidential Unit Citations, Valorous Unit Awards and Meritorious Unit Commendations. These were usually awarded to units going above and beyond the call of duty, and in most cases, showing exceptional valor.

* Army Photos – feature various activities of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War

* The Interactive Vietnam Veterans Memorial – featuring service records for each name on the wall

* Photos of the Marine Corps in Vietnam in color

* Photos of the Marine Corps in Vietnam in black and white

Footnote.com will continue to work with the National Archives to add more Vietnam War content online.
