“The Vietnam War” presented by Michael Pham.

April 2015 marked the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, ending America’s most controversial foreign conflict of the 20th century.  The Vietnam War was the longest and the most unpopular war in U.S. history, exacting enormous human toll in terms of fatalities.  At least 2 million Vietnamese civilians and combatants were killed.  Over 58,000 American service members also died in the conflict.  Even to this day, many Americans (and Vietnamese) still question whether the Vietnam War was necessary.

Please come and join us for a discussion on the “what, when, and why of the Vietnam War.”

Location: Building 3, room 102
