        It Was My Duty to Serve | On Two Fronts: Latinos & Vietnam

        This educational module adapted from the film On Two Fronts: Latinos & Vietnam examines the long tradition of Latino military service in the United States. Nearly half a million Latinos fought in World War II, and over 80,000 Latinos fought in the Vietnam War. This module weaves together several veterans' personal stories to explore the reasons why so many Latinos have enlisted in the armed forces before, during, and after the Vietnam War. The module shows what military service means to Latinos who have experienced multiple generations of discrimination and barriers to full citizenship. The module also reflects on how our society recognizes military service and the sacrifices war veterans have made.
