Battlefield Trauma: Vietnam to Afghanistan
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Kroch Library, 2B48 Olin Library, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA
The 2008 National Defense Authorization Act authorized a program to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. The Commemorative Partner Program is designed to assist a grateful nation in thanking and honoring our Vietnam Veterans and their families. Cornell University has become a Commemorative Partner. As a partner, the university will host 2 events per year that will recognize the Vietnam Veterans and their families’ service, valor, and sacrifice.
Our first event is a presentation by Cornell alum Dr. Gus Kappler, BA ‘61 and MD ’65. Dr. Gus Kappler and his guest Gary Stoller will discuss their military and medical experiences during the war and the social lessons they’ve learned along the way. The University Archives will display previously donated items of Dr. Gus Kappler from the Vietnam War Archive which include pictures, letters, and other memorabilia.
NOTE: This presentation may contain some graphic images.
Reception to follow.
Sponsored by the Cornell Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Committee, Cornell University Veteran Colleague Network Group, and Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University Library.
