For a generation that came of age in the 1960s, the Vietnam War was inescapable and divided the nation. A low draft number spurred action. Learn about the War’s history and context through the experience of a local resident on the front lines, the heroism and dedication he witnessed and, years later, a chance encounter with a former enemy and their ensuing reconciliation.
