Our Forgotten Warriors: Vietnam Veterans Face the Challenges of the ‘80s




Our Forgotten Warriors: Vietnam Veterans Face the Challenges of the ‘80s
 1981 | WQDR-FM

Radio station WQDR-FM in Raleigh, North Carolina, earns a Peabody Award for Our Forgotten Warriors: Vietnam Veterans Face the Challenges of the 80s. These short reports were aired several times daily. Well researched vignettes brought out little known facts about problems faced by Vietnam veterans, both men and women, and then constructively offered concrete suggestions for the future as to what needs to be done. Our Forgotten Warriors coincided with renewed concern over the draft and the proximity of Veteran’s Day. The impact of such public service was rewarding both to the station and to those in the audience. It clearly merits a Peabody Award for WQDR-FM, Raleigh.
