The Arkansas Vietnam War Project: An Update

This program will be presented on YouTube Live

About the Program

The CALS Butler Center’s Brian Robertson will give an update on a digital project launched in 2014 to document Arkansas’s role in the Vietnam War and preserve materials from the period for educators, researchers, and family members to help future generations understand more about the war and our veterans’ experiences in it. The project has recently focused on recording oral histories from veterans and family members.

Due to ongoing public health concerns, Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) has suspended all programs and outreach through the end of August. We will be providing virtual programming and other online services during this time. All CALS branches will be closed until at least Monday, May 11. For more information, go to cals.org.
