The Vietnam-Era Declassified Documents

Digital Copies

Since 1992, this database has been an index to Vietnam-era documents declassified by the Department of Defense (now totaling approximately 145,000 documents). The Federal Research Division has received digital copies of these documents and research staff are linking the searchable index records to the digital documents, which then will be retrievable online. Documents still will be available on microfilm for borrowing through local library interlibrary loan or by purchase through the Library of Congress Photoduplication Service.

Documents received from the Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office in December 2006 have been added to the index and may be viewed online. Henceforth, upon completion of indexing, all new shipments will be available digitally. Researchers should look to the bottom of the index record for the link to view the document image. Working backward, Federal Research Division staff will continue linking document image files to index records and adding them to the database. Gradually, most index records will provide a link to online retrieval of the original documents.
