To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War, Veterans SA is gathering the stories of South Australian Vietnam veterans and their families to capture and preserve these personal histories for the benefit of future generations.

These stories are being published on this website to build a deeper understanding of the role and the experiences of South Australians in the Vietnam War and the sacrifices they made to serve our country.

These stories will not retell specific facts about the war, but instead provide a personal insight into the individual experiences of those who served; before, during and after Vietnam.

Vietnam veterans are recognised for their service in the Vietnam War. We honour those who served and the families that support them and look forward to sharing their stories.

Please note submissions for Vietnam50 stories are now closed.
