Medal of Honour
I am both an ex soldier and a history graduate (British) and this Podcast is of exceptional quality. I have learned much about the Vietnam war, those who fought in it, and also lessons for my day to day life. The Podcast is not only accademicly interesting but also fascinating in terms of Narrative. These men manage to describe their experiences as though you were fighting a long side them, they use extraordinary detail and a down to earth approach to the lessons they take from these harrowing times. This is what Podcasts hould be about, passing on a message of honour and resepct amongst men. Teaching a new generation of Technocrats about real life, brotherhood, and what it means to have one's freedom. Well done Pritzker Military Library and thank you to those recipiants of the medal for your work towards humanity.
