The Ho Chi Minh Trail was used to transport military members and supplies.
During the Cold War, the path as well as areas in Laos, North Vietnam and South Vietnam were bombed.
It’s one of the topics that David Bena and Col. Ray “Bones” Burns will discuss at Old Bust Head Brewing Company, 7134 Farm Station Road in Vint Hill.
Bena, the senior pastor for Immanuel Anglican Church in Woodbridge, served as a lieutenant for the United States Marine Corps. Later on, he acted as an Air Force chaplain and retired from the military in 1992.
Burns was appointed as a second lieutenant, and was a bombardier and navigator for A-6A Intruder squadrons. He eventually served as the Marine Corps Combat Development Command Chief of Staff and completed his military career in 1992.
Hosted by the Cold War Museum and Old Bust Head Brewing Company, the presentation begins at 2 p.m. on December 8.
Tickets cost $35 on eventbrite and $45 at the door.
