A Look at the Vietnam War—40 Years Later
Thursday, April 30, 2015
It’s hard to believe the Vietnam War came to an unsatisfying conclusion 40 years ago this week. Dr. Tom and both his special guests have personal experience with the era. Unity Institute® and Seminary senior Nhien Vuong Dougherty was born in Vietnam and brought to the United States by her parents at the fall of Saigon in 1975; she was 2 years old. First-year UI student Don Ray served with the U.S. Army in Saigon during the infamous 1968 Tet Offensive. Also, Dr. Tom flew medical evacuation helicopters in combat during 1971. Their experiences bring listeners personal stories only veterans and survivors of the unhappy conflict could provide. Do not miss this one. Share the link with friends and Vietnam veterans.
