The Vietnam War was one of the conflicts that occurred during the Cold War.
How did the United States get involved? The public can find out by attending an upcoming presentation.
Don Stanton will cover topics related to the event in his talk, “The Vietnam War: How We Got In…And How We Got Out”.
Peace talks by the Johnson and Nixon administrations, how Cambodia and Laos were impacted by the invasions, and the 1967 Military Selective Service Act are among the subjects that will be discussed.
The Cold War Museum is hosting the online event, which begins at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Visit eventbrite to purchase tickets, which are $20. The proceeds support the Cold War Museum.
