Join Us as We Explore the Deeper Meaning of Vietnam War from the Vantage Point of a Half Century

Fifty years after the signing of the “Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring the Peace in Vietnam,” the Vietnam War and its consequences continue to shape much of American life in politics, military strategy, culture, race relations and society as a whole. Vietnam: A 50 Year Retrospective will explore the deeper meaning of the Vietnam War from the vantage point of a half-century — not merely the war itself but also its impact — and will feature some of the most perceptive and recognized participants in the Vietnam story. They include noted historians, diplomats, military leaders, Vietnam veterans, Purple Heart recipients and foreign correspondents.

This day-long conference is hosted with support from GW's Columbian College of Arts & Sciences, the Wallace Foundation, and Carnegie Corporation of New York. C-SPAN will broadcast the event live. Visit the CCAS website for details.

Registration is encouraged but not required; however, seating is on a first come, first served basis. Overflow seating will be available in the lobby to view the conference via livestream.
