Vietnam Revisited by Fritz Mehrtens

May 15, 2018

“Fritz Mehrtens, a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel and Vietnam veteran, presents Vietnam Revisited, a review of the events leading up to the struggle and the US involvement in it.  Vietnam was a major feature of the turbulent decade of the ‘60s that so changed American culture, and this presentation identifies the people and events that caused the conflict.  It further examines the two phases of US engagement in the conflict, the ‘Vietnamization’ program that began the US withdrawal, and the eventual fall of Saigon in 1975.  ~ 45 minutes.
