VAN WERT — The Van Wert Historical Society is excited to welcome Judy Fischer, a retired teacher from Delphos. The presentation Vietnam Today is based on a need to find answers. Judy, her brother and husband Vern, traveled to Vietnam in 2012. Their trip was the result of the need to explore the geography, people and culture of a country that played a paramount role in their early adult years. All three experience the war from different perspectives.
Judy’s brother lost two close friends in the war. Vern was serving in the military, at the time, but did serve a Vietnam tour. Judy was a college student at BGSU, experiencing the protests and demonstrations. Together these three travelers took at toured of the country trying to make sense of the conflict and experience its impact on the country. Judy has a bachelor’s degree from BGSU and a Masters from The University of Dayton.
Come listen to Judy as she shares her new perspectives and travel experiences on Sunday at 2 p.m. March 30 in the Annex.
