A Minnesota PBS Initiative
The Soundtrack of War
Songs from Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Dylan and the Beatles became the soundtrack to the Vietnam War experience for many who served in Southeast Asia and who experienced the profound impact of the war at home.
Music is a thread in many of the stories that have been shared here at The Story Wall. Below are just a few that highlight the power that music has in shaping experiences, memories and perspectives about the War in Vietnam. Take a look:
