Previous airings of "Utah Vietnam War Stories" on:
Focusing on the final, convulsive years of U.S. involvement in Vietnam, producers Elizabeth Searles and Sally Shaum fashion a powerful portrait of the last Utah residents to serve in the conflict. From the confusion of "Vietnamization" - an awkward transfer of power to the South Vietnamese so they would carry a larger share of the war effort - to the air war aimed at moving along the Paris peace talks, men and women from Utah's big cities and small towns served in every corner during the final years of the war. As anti-war sentiment built at home, each soldier, sailor and pilot focused on doing their job and supporting their buddies. Many had a special vow, in the words of Air Force veteran David Chung of Cedar City, "not to be the last to die in Vietnam."
