The Evening Star Christmas Eve 1969 Edition With Vietnam War And U.S. Military News December 24, 1969

The Historic Soldiers Christmas Series continues with a spotlight on the United States Army in the Vietnam War.  In this video, I will show you a copy of The Evening Star newspaper from December 24, 1969.  This was filmed on December 23, 2014 ... one day shy of the paper's 45th anniversary.  The newspaper features stories pertaining to Vietnam, pertaining to the then President Richard Nixon, advertisements and holiday cheer.  There are a lot of historically-significant reports in this newspaper.  It was certainly a chaotic time.
