50 Years Post Vietnam – A Welcome Home is Still a Need

The Vietnam War ended 50 years ago – but the experiences of that conflict still impact us today. Join us as we connect with Montana Vietnam veterans Ray Read and Bill Rich ahead of their annual Montana Welcome Home event on March 29 at the state capitol in Helena.

We’ll also talk with Diane Carlson Evans, an Army Nurse Corp Captain, who will tell the story of what the nurses experienced both on the battlefield and at home. Captain Evens led a 10-year effort for recognition of those sacrifices, which led to the creation of the Vietnam Women’s Memorial.
