Last Stand at Khe Sanh: The U.S. Marines’ Finest Hour in Vietnam

July 25

7:30 pm

Investigative journalist, foreign correspondent and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Gregg Jones will discuss his book Last Stand at Khe Sanh: The U.S. Marines’ Finest Hour in Vietnam.

Gregg chronicles the story of the agonizing and deadly 77-day siege of a Marine combat base at Khe Sanh, South Vietnam, in 1968.  No battle during the Viet Nam conflict received more attention on the home front.  American forces fought bravely against numerically superior enemy forces, but their heroic efforts are largely forgotten.
