Vietnam War

US Military History

From the National Museum of the American Indian, "Approximately 42,000 American Indians—one of four eligible Native people compared to about one of twelve non-Natives—served in the armed forces during the war in Vietnam (1964–1975). Many were drafted, but a large number volunteered, often citing family and tribal traditions of service as a reason.


"It was an Honor to serve our country as a Northern Arapaho woman. I served with Pride in my people and the United States."
