To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the war in Vietnam, a group of local veterans will visit VHCC next week to share their wartime experiences and answer questions about life back in the states.
The event is being sponsored by the VHCC Student Veterans Association and will include Vietnam veterans from various branches of the U.S. military. Members of the group travel throughout the region to discuss their views on the war, the impact the war had on them and their families, and their reaction to protesting in America. Photos, videos and military memorabilia will be used to illustrate their talk.
The event is set for Thursday, March 19, at 2 p.m. in Keyser-Aday Theatre and open to all community members. For additional information, please contact Veterans Officer Debbie Barrett at (276) 739-2460.
