Join Education Director Callie Wright from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund to learn more about the exciting contest that resulted in the creation of a national treasure. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Campus has an amazing history and it all develops only years after the end of the conflict in Vietnam.  This program will also feature images and the stories of some of the most interesting artifacts that have been left behind at the Wall in Washington DC.

A cash bar will be available along with a small selection of food. Coffee is complimentary.

This event is part of the First Division Museum’s popular series, A Date with History. The monthly programs feature an evening of lively discussion with authors, panelists, historians, and special speakers.
