The Vietnam War:  "40 Years Later"
Friday, May 15, 7:00 - 8:45 pm
Bethlehem Public Library
451 Delaware Ave., Delmar NY 

Dan_Wilcox



 April marks the 40th Year Anniversary of the End of the Vietnam War. Historian Larry Wittner and Veteran for Peace Dan Wilcox will be the speakers at this event.   Larry Wittner will be in Vietnam in April, as a member of a delegation  from the Vietnam Peace Commemoration Committee, a group of leading peace activists who worked to stop the Vietnam War in the 1960's.  This forum will be an opportunity for Larry to discuss his trip to Vietnam and reflect on 
war and its aftermath
.   May 1-2, Dan Wilcox will be attending a Conference in Washington DC titled, "Vietnam:  The Power of Protest".  Dan will discuss the conference and also speak about his experiences as a soldier and an antiwar activist during the Vietnam War.

Here’s an excerpt from a petition that 1,000 + historians sent to the US government’s 50th anniversary commemoration program: Your official commemoration should be an opportunity to hear, recognize and perhaps reconcile or heal the lasting wounds of that era. If the US government cannot provide a bridge for crossing that Vietnam divide, how can we urge reconciliation in other parts of the world where sectarian tensions are on the rise? We believe, as did such a huge proportion of the US population decades ago, that the Vietnam War was a mistake. No commemoration of the war can ignore that view. How else can we as a nation hope to learn the lessons of Vietnam, to avoid repeating that mistake over and over again? See more at:  http://historynewsnetwork.org/article/157189#sthash.7qgBt2vU.dpuf
