About the Event

As a young, non-commissioned officer, then 19-year old US Army Sergeant Larry Saul served a combat tour in Vietnam in 1970. Fifty years later he returned to Vietnam to explore the beautiful country and see how the fascinating people had evolved since the end of the war. He has made two subsequent trips since. This lecture will look at the history, culture and geography of Vietnam from the late 19th century up to 1975. Beginning with the Big Picture, he will use the mission of his unit and their experiences to present a snapshot of the US involvement...then, fast forward to late 2018 and how Vietnam has progressed.
