Vietnam War

Secret War in Laos

We anticipate a growing number of resources for teaching and learning about the Secret War in Laos will become available as more and more districts weave it into their curriculum. If you have recommendations for websites, books, and videos to add to the list below, Please contact Erica Swift or Kathleen Watt, Project Coordinators, with updates. We are particularly interested in resources that address the following topics:

  • A military perspective from those who served in the War
  • Refugee camps from the perspective of those who made camp their new way of life
  • Refugees who sought a way out of the camps
  • Relocation (in some cases not willingly) to the United States, with an understanding of what it means to “straddle two cultures”
