At The Delmar Library This Friday Nancy Lynch Speaks

Delmar Public Library
38481 Sussex Highway

Friday, October 30, at 2 pm.

Delaware Humanities Forum program


Vietnam Mailbag

Speaker: Nancy E. Lynch

Topic: History, United States History

When American troops in Vietnam answered the call to correspond with a young reporter four decades ago, they could not have envisioned the enduring relevancy of their war letters or the rich legacy their words, photographs and memorabilia would leave to succeeding generations. Ms. Lynch discusses and reads selected war letters from her book, Vietnam Mailbag, Voices From the War: 1968-1972, based on her popular newspaper column, “Nancy’s Vietnam Mailbag.” She is accompanied by Vietnam veteran Rick Lovekin, a Huey helicopter door gunner, Cobra crew chief and frequent letter writer to Nancy, who shows slides from Vietnam set to 1960s music.
