Visit from Vietnam Vets

The W.T. Clarke Middle School student government received a special visit from members of the Vietnam War Veterans Association on Nov. 23.
The visit, coordinated by student government advisors Marge Sweeney and Lisa Scully, gave the students an opportunity to learn about the hardships of the Vietnam War. The servicemen discussed the extreme weather conditions, shared their memories and experiences during the war, and circulated authentic materials used by soldiers such as helmets, photo albums and vests.
The veterans also held a question-and-answer session to address students’ inquiries about life in Vietnam.
