Lee Hauser wrote this history of AFVN as his thesis for his Master's degree in radio, television, and motion pictures at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which he received in 1972. It details the history of military broadcasting during most of the Vietnam War.
A large portion of this manuscript addresses the question of whether news as reported to troops in the field was censored. Hauser writes this thesis after reviewing pertinent documents and interviewing officers and enlisted men who were involved after charges of news censorship were made.
Hauser wrote this manuscript after his discharge from the military.
