Our distinguished panel, a bipartisan group of Former Members of Congress joined experts on the Vietnam War to examine the tumultuous Vietnam era. Many of the issues that shaped our nation in the 1960s and 1970s still play a leading role in our national dialogue: race relations, culture wars, how we treat veterans, and the erosion of trust in government. Thank you to our panel for sharing their unique and inspiring stories, from which we can learn so much. The conversation shed some light on the incredible impact of the Vietnam era, both on a personal level and on a national level, into today’s America.
