I learned so much about Vietnam -- the combat, the politics, the protests. Two of these articles were incredibly gut-wrenching and soul-shaking to read (one was a soldier's account of battle and the nightmares it caused, one a soldier's account of his fight to bring fellow soldiers to justice after their rape & murder of a Vietnamese girl) but all important stories.

It all feels so eerily relevant.
