My Vietnam Your Iraq tells the stories of Vietnam veterans and their children who have served in Iraq. Their stories examine the pride, challenges, fears, and the myriad of emotions they have experienced during and after deployment.

The Vietnam War polarized the United States in the 1960s; decades later, U.S. involvement in Iraq initiated its own discord. But MY VIETNAM YOUR IRAQ connects these two wars with little attention paid to divisive politics, choosing instead to focus on the personal stories of eight Vietnam veterans whose own children have served in Iraq. The stories examine the pride, fear, and myriad of emotions and challenges that parents and their children face during deployment, each with their own perspective and expectation. Though the stories are unique to the individual families, these intimate profiles resonate with all of us: the stories of the men and women who fought and fight for themselves, their families, and their country.

Review by Mark on 07/17/20 review stating Fascinating and compelling!
This film is about the relationship between parents and children through the shared experience of wartime service. The film tells the stories of several families where one or both of the parents served in Vietnam and one or more of the children served in Iraq. Through these interviews, the subjects reveal in a frank and candid manner their feelings about their military service and combat experiences, and how that shared experience has affected their family. Fascinating, compelling and occasionally heart-wrenching, My Vietnam, Your Iraq is a thought-provoking testimony about the complexity of war and its effects on the family unit.
