During the event, Vietnam War veterans who served as Green Berets in the Army’s Special Forces unit will discuss how the United States came to rely on the Montagnards to help fight the North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong. The panel will also include Montagnards who fought in the war.
The symposium will begin at 7 pm inside the Smokey Stover Theater aboard the USS Yorktown. Both admission and parking are FREE.

- Since the war, the Montagnards have been given refugee status here in the United States
