Military Science Vietnam Memorial Luncheon
The Vietnam Memorial Luncheon was sponsored by the Department of Military Science. National reconciliation, civic responsibility, civil disobedience and ethical dilemmas were among the primary themes that were explored at the February 2017 symposium planned and executed by senior ROTC cadets to commemorate the 52nd Anniversary of the Vietnam War. One of the goals of the conference (attended by nearly 150 military veterans, their families, community members and former activists from throughout the region) was to recognize the commitment and sacrifice of the men and women who served their country during a divisive time in our nation’s history, and to recognize the right of American citizens to freely express their support or opposition to involvement of the United States in military conflicts.
