Collections Outside of MNHS

Veteran's Service Records, National Archives
Military personnel records can include DD 214s/Separation Documents, service personnel records found within the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF), and medical records. Military personnel records can be used for proving military service or as a valuable tool in genealogical research.

Vietnam War Oral History Interviews, Anoka County Historical Society
Many interviews are with veterans of the war, but some were conducted with family or spouses of military personnel, and a few with residents of the county who were connected to the war in other ways. A single interview will often cover several topics, and many do not focus solely on the Vietnam War.
