The recent Ken Burns and Lynn Novick documentary, The Vietnam War, reignited unresolved controversies, triggered forgotten memories, and in some cases, reopened old wounds. Please join us for a day-long symposium examining issues that continue to spark debate such as lessons learned, conscription versus all-volunteer service, and the impact of media coverage. The National Infantry Museum Foundation Leadership Lecture Series event is hosted by COL (Ret) Dr. Carl Savory, LTG (Ret) Carmen Cavezza and COL (Ret) Ralph Puckett, all veterans of the Vietnam War.
