    • "Goodbye Vietnam" by Chris Lambert - Alpha 1/5
      "Goodbye Viet Nam" is a letter written by Chris Lambert, a U.S. Marine, saying goodbye to over 40 years of nightmares surviving alcoholism, drug dependance and even bouts of suicidal tenancies. Pictures from the National Archives are used to illustrate this compelling letter in hopes that it will help all veterans suffering to find assistance and family members understand why Post Traumatic Stress from war is so difficult to overcome. Chris is a highly decorated Viet Nam Veteran now helping other veterans with PTSD. Veterans looking for assistance should contact the nearest VA office.
