Cover of the November 18, 1969, edition of the "Broadside," student newspaper for George Mason College.

Professor Meredith Lair will moderate a panel discussion with four Vietnam veterans--3 men and 1 woman--whose tours of duty demonstrate the myriad experiences of American military personnel in the Vietnam War. The panel discussion will include Q&A from the audience.

Hosted by the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC), Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), and George Mason University Libraries, this event is part of University Library's efforts to honor and contextualize the Vietnam War amidst its ongoing 50th anniversary. 

Following the discussion, SCRC staff will give a tour of the current exhibition "A War of Contradictions: The Vietnam Conflict, 1945-1975."

This event is free and open to all members of the Mason community. Refreshments will be provided.
