Join us on Wednesday, April 13th from 8-9:30PM in American University's Wechsler Theater (MGC 315) for a panel discussion on the untold history of the Vietnam War. Our panelists will discuss a wide range of topics in the Vietnam Conflict, including the lesser-known aspects of the war and the many challenges the Vietnamese still face to this day as a result of the fighting. Here is a link to the Facebook event page.
