Footnote.com has announced additions to its Vietnam War collection. The new resources are Army Photos and Unit Service Awards. These additions are a result of the partnership between Footnote.com and the National Archives.
In a press release sent from Footnote.com’s corporate home in Lindon, Utah, CEO Russell Wilding said, “These documents and photos tell a part of the Vietnam War story that you just can’t find in textbooks. It’s imperative that we preserve and share this side of history for future generations. We are encouraging everyone to come to Footnote.com and enhance these stories by adding their own comments, photos and documents.”
GeneaBlogie comment: I’m a big fan of Footnote.com. But I was not particularly enthused by these additions. They are historically important, but I would rather have seen a collection of individual awards rather than unit service awards. But the unit service awards collection is only 1% complete; maybe I’ll warm to it when there’s more of it.
