Listen to the Veterans Breakfast Club

On Monday, April 9, the VBC with Peters Township Public Library hosted a fascinating and wide-ranging panel discussion of Ken Burns PBS series “The Vietnam War.” The featured four Vietnam veterans as panelists (Andy Nigut, Ed Blank, George Dvorznak, and Ron Worstell) and then opened the floor up to comments and questions. The discussion delved into controversial and contentious issues, and there was much disagreement among the veterans. But the discourse was civil and respectful and always enlightening. Volunteer Bob Donnan recorded the event in its entirety, and we’re grateful to Bob for capturing and preserving this memorable community conversation. We’re also grateful to Peters Township Public Library for hosting us!
