Updates from Across the Pond
By John Lindquist
Hello to everyone from the Eastern Front. Wendy and I are back in England but we will return to the US on July 12th. My daughter, grandson, and son-in-law will visit this summer. On Monday, January 23rd, I did a talk and showed a dvd to the Minster Lovell History Club - Vietnam 1968.
The dvd was from the Wisconsin Vietnam War Museum in Madison. It is Wisconsin Veterans recalling oral history from 1968. We had 60 people show up. I got a haircut and put on my Dress Blues. I started by having all the Veterans stand up. We are the true 190! I had a table with books, maps, pictures, and Agent Orange material.
It was well received and at times a tear-jerker. After the dvd, we had questions and other veterans related some of their stories. This was the third one I have done since 2017. I'll have to do one on VVAW next year.
We ended with a raffle.
