Vietnam War; Culture; Religion; Leadership; History; Anxiety
For thousands of Latter-day Saints who either served in Vietnam or waited for loved ones to come home, the conflict was an experience characterized by "apprehension, danger, temptation, and brotherhood." However, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during this time did not necessarily follow or embrace the cultural trends of the rest of the country.
