Philip M. Flammer interview

Dates: 1985 October 31

Transcript of an interview conducted by Christopher Stockwell on 31 Oct. 1985 for the Ray Hillam military history project. Flammer went to Vietnam as a historian for the Air Force from 1968 to 1969 and lived in Saigon where he worked and taught for the University of Maryland. He also tutored a Vietnamese girl in English, performed some missionary work for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and felt compassion for the Vietnamese people. He said he wished that better conduct had been required of U.S. personnel in Vietnam, and he said it was a shame that Americans did not appreciate the sacrifice of military persons who served in the war.
