Kansas City Vietnam Homecoming
Stellar clip that's #TBT appropriate . . . Check this story or a Vietnam Vet talking about his tour and return trip to the States and Kansas City.
Description . . .
"Dr. James Willbanks served in Vietnam in the early 1970s as an Army Advisor, and now teaches history at the Army Command and General Staff College in Leavenworth, Kansas. Willbanks shares what it’s like to teach a war he experienced first hand and his role in Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s epic documentary "The Vietnam War."
"LZs or Landing Zones were used extensively in the Vietnam War to move forces in and out of combat zones. The "LZ Kansas City" series tells the stories of local veterans who “landed” back here after the war, as well as our region’s contributions and reactions."
