STILL WAITIN’ – Vietnam Vets Muse on the Pentagon Plan to Clean Up the Vietnam War

STILL WAITIN’ – A short video produced by:
The Vietnam War Commemoration CORRECTION Project

The pentagon’s Vietnam War Commemoration Project was funded by Congress to the tune of $5 millions a year for the next1 13 years. That’s $125 million of our tax dollars to fund events designed by “patriotic” local organizations to clean up the image of the Vietnam War. The correct history of this controversial war is our concern. Many argue the war was unnecessary, even an international crime. Unfortunately, our CORRECTION Project doesn’t have $65 million. This little absurdist drama had a budget of about $6.50. You might look as this short film as the preface to a greater dialogue to come.
