Sturgis Area Arts Council - Event Details

How did we get into and out of Vietnam?
Friday, September 15 & Friday, September 29
12:00 Noon
Sturgis Public Library's Program Room

To help those of us who thrive on history (as well as those of us who weren't paying attention back in the day), Larry Mayes, Colonel USAF (retired) has spent many hours condensing the broad scope of information about the Vietnam Conflict into an hour long program. He will present "A History of the Vietnam Conflict" on Friday, September 15th at 12:00 noon in the program room of the Sturgis Public Library.

Knowing there are two sides to everything, "Turmoil in The USA" will follow on Friday, September 29th with the same presenter, time and place.

Larry Mayes is a native South Dakotan with a degree in history from Northern State University. While spending thirty years in the US Air Force, he served in Vietnam, fifteen other foreign countries, and earned Master's degrees in Counseling and Public Administration. He retired to Rapid City in 1998 with his wife Pat.
