Are you interested in supporting both our veteran community and the Wounded Warrior Project? How about learning about our nation’s military told by Vietnam veterans coinciding in the surrounding area, free of charge? If so, please come by the Winter Performing Arts building on Monday, April 3, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.

     This event will be held by service members from the United States Navy, Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force and will provide the audience with a unique perspective by giving them the opportunity to listen to Vietnam stories through veteran’s own eyes and experiences.

     Throughout grade school, students have learned about the Vietnam War and its importance to our country, but it’s not every day that we get to hear first-hand experiences and stories from the brave men who fought in the war. The program moderator will be Lancaster area’s own Mr. Jeff Butch, who is retired from both the United States Marine Corp and Hempfield School Board, and he will be more than happy to answer student’s questions and tell students about his experiences. Not only has Mr. Butch served alongside our nation’s finest, but he was once in Millersville student shoes as both a student and a member of the School District of Lancaster.

International Education Week

      In addition to this panel discussion, there will be a Vietnam War artifact display in order to enhance MU student’s knowledge on different items from this important time in our nation’s history. Students should bring questions questions and an open mind on April 3. The event will be an educationally rewarding and interactive experience. We look forward to seeing you!
