VIETNAM WAR, 50th COMMEMORATION BOOK/DVD
A Time To Honor

Stories of Service, Duty and Sacrifice


Half a century has passed since the Vietnam War, and 50 years of novels, films and music have dramatized and mythologized the controversial conflict.  This book approaches the war in a uniquely personal way, focusing on individual stories of men and women from every state and Service who fulfilled their duty during the Vietnam War.  Their day-to-day experiences are heartbreaking, raw, detailed and sometimes even humorous.

More than 58,000 troops lost their lives in Vietnam.  The rest came home to bitterly divided fellow Americans, and the protesters’ hostility toward the war spilled over to the warriors.

These individual stories give us a glimpse of what the war was like from a ground-level, personal perspective.  Our effort here is to recognize and pay tribute to our Vietnam Veterans. It is well past time to welcome these men and women home, to remember their service, and to honor their sacrifices.

We will try to have FREE copies of this book/dvd at the Voices from Vietnam film showing for our Vietnam Veteran attendees. 

 

Please note that events have been stagnant due to pandemic

VIETNAM VETERANS DAY!
On March 28, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed into law The Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, establishing The National Vietnam War Veterans Day that is now celebrated each year on March 29.

The recognition is extended to men and women who served on active duty in the U.S. armed forces from Nov. 1, 1955, to May 15, 1975, whether in peacetime or war. Nine million Americans — about 6.4 million of them living today — served during that period.

VOICES FROM VIETNAM FILM

Woburn Memorial High School Auditorium - 2pm

Sunday - March 29th 2020


This year on Sunday March 29th, the Woburn Historical Society presents the showing of our own Voices from Vietnam film at the Woburn High School auditorium starting at 2pm.

The film, written by Kathy Lucero and Bob Maguire with help from Larry Guiseppe (Woburn’s Veterans’ Services Officer), was directed and edited by Brian Ouellette.

The film, narrated by Kathy McGann (US Army Nurse - 95th Evacuation Hospital in Da Nang and daughter of WWII veteran Mike McGann), focuses on the personal experiences of five Woburn residents who served in the Vietnam War in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.  Paul Devlin (US Marines), Larry Guiseppe (US Marines), Frank Haubner (US Army), Tom Quigley (US Marines) and Dave Wall (US Marines) recount their experiences of enlistment, boot camp and deployment…some of the experiences were funny, some tragic…some very emotional.
