Fifty years ago, in 1973, the Paris Peace Accords were signed, signaling the end of America’s combatant role in Vietnam. But, what was Vietnam? To some, it’s just words on a page. To others, it’s grainy, eerie images. To others, Vietnam has become part of their life stories. This 1st Thursday offers a safe place for three Vietnam veterans to bring history alive, share their stories and answer questions. Veterans include Doug Randolph, 1stMarine Division; Jim Deister, Combat Engineer, 9th Infantry Division; and Mario G. Mata, 1st Cavalry Division. Thank you to the Vietnam Veterans Association of America, VFW, VVA, DAV, USMC League, American Legion, friends and many others.
