Four Viet Nam-era veterans now living on the Vineyard will gather to reflect on the war, the tumultuous events surrounding it and their reactions to a recent documentary series on a conflict that helped define a generation. The discussion will take place on Tuesday, November 14, as part of the Gazette’s Tuesdays in the Newsroom series.
Veterans who will take part in the discussion will include Marine Sergeant Gregory Spain, James Bishop, also a combat Marine; William Stafursky, who served in the Army military police; and Tom Bennett, a U.S. Air Force medic.
Tuesdays in the Newsroom events are held every second Tuesday of the month in the newsroom of the Gazette at 34 South Summer street in Edgartown. Doors open at 5:15 pm for light refreshments, followed by the program. The event ends by 7 p.m.
The event is free, but advance registration is required at newsroom.bpt.me.
