Vietnam Veterans – Village Voices

Posted on January 29th, 2018

Capitol Hill Village presents “Vietnam – Veterans’ Experiences”  Monday, March 5, 2018, 7-8 p.m. at the Northeast Library, 330 Seventh St. NE.

1968 was a crucial year in the Vietnam War: the Tet offensive, the bloody battle of Khe Sanh, the My Lai massacre, and Lyndon Johnson’s announcement that he would not seek another term as President all happened in the first three months. The March Village Voices has a panel of four men who served in the uniformed military during the war: Richard Neal (Marines), Michael Grace Coast Guard), Joseph Kerr and Gary Peterson (Army). They will discuss their experiences during the war, their reflections on it since, and what they think of the current wave of television programs and films and books on the Vietnam war years.

Meet and learn from your illustrious Capitol Hill neighbors in informal, free, public discussions about social, economic, and political topics in this latest installment in the Village Voices series.
