“The Vietnam War” Panel
As a regional convener for Southeast Iowa, Iowa Wesleyan University, in joint partnership with the Mount Pleasant Public Library, co-sponsored a panel regarding the Vietnam War. The program was well attended by students and community members and featured a very diverse panel that included people representing the United States Government, United States Military, conscientious objectors to the War, and a South Vietnamese immigrant. The special speaker was Dr. Kenneth M. Quinn, former United States Ambassador to the Kingdom of Cambodia and current President of the World Food Prize. The panel was able to share about their experience in regards to the military conflict and fielded questions from the audience. The program was a part of the University’s series related to the PBS documentary by Ken Burns titled “The Vietnam War”. The event was moderated by Jeffery Meyer from the Mt. Pleasant Public Library and Paula Wiley from Iowa Wesleyan Chadwick Library.
