LUNCH AND LEARN
AN AMERICAN SOLDIER’S EXPERIENCE IN VIETNAM
• Thursday, November 16
• 12 – 1:30 pm
• Larry Korteum, local historian, veteran, Presenter
In 1968, there were 535,000 U.S. soldiers in Vietnam having hundreds of different jobs. Rather than centering on blood and death, this talk studies what the day to day life was like for an average soldier in the “Tet Offensive” era of the war. Former Army Specialist Larry Kortuem explains the boredom and heightened danger of a combat zone where the friendly and hostile look the same. Every story is different and this one is his. There will be time allowed for sharing, discussion, and questions.
