The Vietnam Era Veteran: Challenge for Change. Administrator's Seminars on Vietnam Era Veterans.
Veterans Administration, Washington, DC.
This report covers 5 regional seminars designed to increase the Veterans Administration understanding of Vietnam Era veterans. The process used was one of involvement and interaction of Veterans Administration officials with returning Vietnam Era veterans and other young people. After the traditional introductions and keynote remarks, there was a series of three consecutive panels: (1) veterans who had served in Vietnam; (2) young VA employees who had also served in Vietnam; and (3) the three top leaders of the VA. Informality, spontaneity and audience participation were emphasized throughout. The panels were then followed by small discussion groups containing a diversity of members to continue the interaction process. Excerpts from the three panels contained in this report were selected on the basis of representativeness. They reflect the range of experiences, concerns, and problems expressed by Vietnam Era veterans at the seminars. (Editor/HS)
