American Forces Vietnam Network was created as a morale-boosting military radio station for servicemen and women in Vietnam. AFVN broadcast 24 hours a day, seven days a week for over 10 years; it began broadcasting on August 15, 1962 and ended in March of 1973. After this, it changed its name and was run by civilians in Saigon .
AFVN was a forum for news, comedy and entertainment for the soldiers during the Vietnam War. This collection includes clips from AFVN news shows, ads, advice for soldiers in Vietnam (about drinking water, VD, sending letters and packages and other such interesting blips), DJ intros, and short philosophical and morale-boosting segments.
