The public is invited to engage in a free event leading up to Veterans Day about the South Vietnamese perspective of the Vietnam War.
Historian Julie Pham will present her research on the Vietnam War through the lens of South Vietnamese soldiers at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 at the Artillery Barracks, 600 Hatheway Road. There will be a small reception prior to the conversation with Pham, who will also be joined by members of Clark County’s Vietnamese community.
She will share anecdotes from her 2019 book, “Their War: The Perspectives of the South Vietnamese Military in the Words of Veteran-Emigres,” which she drew from her interviews with 40 South Vietnamese veterans living in the U.S.
The event is hosted by the Historic Trust and Humanities Washington through the Speakers Bureau Program, a project to provide free public presentations on history, politics, the arts and culture. For more information about the speaker program, visit www.humanities.org/program/speakers-bureau.
