Vietnam War Widows Fight to Restore Their Benefits Ca. 1982Streaming Video - 1982
Almost 60,000 soldiers were killed in combat during the Vietnam War, widowing thousands of wives. In 1981, less than 10 years after the end of the war, the United States government cut benefits to war widows. The widows fought to have their benefits restored by lobbying their representatives. As Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) notes, these benefits were promised the soldiers and their families when they joined the United States military.
