My top 2 questions in the Vietnam War essay was evaluate the impact of the conscription debate on Australian’s involvement in the Vietnam war and Evaluate the impact of the Vietnam war on Australian Veteran Soldiers.
I chose Evaluate the impact of the Vietnam War on Australian Veteran Soldiers rather than the Conscription debates affect in Australian’s involvement in the Vietnam war because I wanted to see how the Vietnam War affected the soldiers rather than the politicians and the affects that society had on the soldiers post war stresses and pressures. The soldier’s thoughts on what was happening around them also were they all aware of the war and the response from general public. Also we have done a little on this topic already and wanted to go further in depth with the topic.
The parts that excites me about the topic is learning more about the war and how the soldiers were impacted because of it. Also learning about the situations that the soldiers were facing and how very small time periods impacted them. Also the public pressures against the soldiers just because they were at Vietnam and how if affected them.
The concerns on the topic is that its going to be depressing because learning about the impacts of the war can have a lots of sad and sickening moments and how the soldiers were impacted greatly. Because its going to be really sad how the soldiers where affected and the results of the impacts from the war and post war.
