My Year in Vietnam*
Vietnam Veterans Share Their Stories
A Presentation Series Organized by the
GVSU Veterans History Project
Dr. James Smither, Moderator
*(actual times may vary, due to illness, injury or other extenuating circumstances)
Over 2.3 million Americans served in and around Vietnam between 1961 and 1973, and each one has a unique story to tell, and their stories go well beyond the traditional stereotypes, both negative and positive, of the American soldier in Vietnam. The panelists include not only combat infantrymen from the Army and Marine Corps, but also radiomen, medical corpsmen, engineers, artillerists, officers, various support personnel, a dog handler, a prison guard and a Special Forces member. In each presentation, three Vietnam veterans with overlapping experiences will tell their stories and take questions from the audience.
All presentations are free and open to the public. All presentations will be in Loosemore Auditorium in Building E of the DeVos Center on the GVSU downtown campus unless otherwise indicated. All presentations will start at 7:00 PM unless otherwise indicated.
