Civic Hall and NYC Veterans Alliance host a panel discussion Veterans Reflect on The Vietnam War: Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Home on October 25, 6-8:30pm. Panelists include Vietnam veterans as well as veterans of the Iraq & Afghanistan wars.
The release of the new PBS documentary, The Vietnam War, by Ken Burns (@) and Lynn Novick (@), is opening new reflections on a momentous period in history. For the older generations that lived through the war, the series is a reminder of battles, moral and physical, that made them question everything they knew about America. For younger people who were born later, the series is an opportunity to learn anew.
To prepare for these conversations, we ask that you take the time to watch The Vietnam War on PBS beforehand.
