Vietnam Remembered

Jacques Leslie
Two major events signaled the Class of 1968’s attempt to capture the emotions and our experiences with the Vietnam War. The first is Jacques Leslie’s fabulous essay summarizing your responses for the Class Book, which is provided below. The second, is the panel and open-session on the Vietnam War conducted the first day of our reunion by Jacques and Rick Sperry, also faithfully reproduced for you here. Any thoughts, comments, suggestions should be sent to Jacques Leslie and Rick Sperry.
