TMS- Vietnam Love Story

Vietnam Love Story STILL.png
David James, Bill Young, Nancy Young

He was a 20-year-old machine gunner in the thick of things in Vietnam, not sure if he would live to see the next sunset. She was a recent high-school graduate headed for nursing school, enjoying her last idyllic teenage Southern Indiana summer. At first, they were virtual strangers, patriotic pen pals, sending scores of letters to each other. Soon, the letters became love letters. In 2021, Bill and Nancy celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary. This is their story of war and love, a true story told through the very letters they wrote in 1967. David James talks with Bill and Nancy Young as well as Author Scott Saalman.
