John Hemphill, Air Force Veteran and the Free Library’s Military History Club facilitator will convene an eighteen-week series of Military History Book Club meetings at the local Vet Center in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Viet Nam War. Wartime and peacetime Veterans of all eras are invited to participate in these guided discussions of the people, places and events surrounding the conflict.  Every session will include a dynamic presentation with interactive discourse and resource sharing. Participants may share and/or recommend reading materials; but OUTSIDE READINGS ARE NOT REQUIRED.

It’s an opportunity to

  • deepen your historical knowledge of the war, including key players, battles, and the issues at stake
  • better appreciate Vietnam veterans' war zone experiences
  • examine how the international community experienced the conflict, and the war's long-term impact on the US, Asia and Europe
  • And for Vietnam veterans, this is a unique opportunity to better understand how your personal experience fits into history's larger story.
