Third Tuesday Author: William E. Campbell
On Tuesday, October 16 at 7pm join Colonel William E. Campbell for a presentation about his time in Vietnam as chronicled in his book The Vietnam War: An Untold Story of Drugs. Colonel Campbell returned from Vietnam in 1972 after serving as Battalion Commander of the 90th Replacement Battalion. He witnessed first-hand the drug problems that affected the troops, and the Army's attempt to detoxify those who had become addicted. Yet, this topic was almost completely omitted in the books he read and the documentaries he watched. He wondered, "Didn't they know? Didn't they care?"
