The Sacrifices and Contributions of Our Vietnam Veterans
Original Airdates: May 29-31, 2020
TVC 495.1: Ed welcomes back author, screenwriter, novelist and raconteur Marvin J. Wolf. A veteran of the U.S. Army, Marv served more than thirteen years active duty, including a combat tour in Vietnam, before returning to the States in 1974 to embark on a very successful career as a freelance writer and photojournalist that has continued for more than four decades.

Marv’s latest book, They Were Soldiers: The Sacrifices and Contributions of Our Vietnam Veterans, is a collaboration with Joseph L. Galloway, the New York Times bestselling author of the We Were Soldiers series and, like Marv, an accomplished journalist and decorated Vietnam veteran. They Were Soldiers not only profiles fifty men and women from various walks of life who served in Vietnam in one capacity or another, but shows that the Vietnam generation is every bit as worthy of respect and admiration as the generations of soldiers that preceded them—particularly in light of the animosity that many Vietnam veterans faced when they came home to the United States. Among those profiled in They Were Soldiers are Ted Gostas and Hal Kushner, both of whose stories Marv shares in this segment.
