    Name: Wayne's War: A Chronicle of the Vietnam Experience
    Date: April 11, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Wayne’s War by Wayne Myles Burton chronicles his experience as a staff officer and company commander in the 9th Infantry Division during Operation Speedy Express in 1968–69 in the Mekong Delta. Grounded in the 240 letters he wrote to his wife during this time, as well as experiences before and since, he describes the conflict between duty and conscience he encountered at a personal level that the country experienced nationally, both during the Vietnam War and the decades that follow. Burton served almost five decades in higher education leadership, his last thirteen as President of North Shore Community College (Massachusetts). He has been a legislator, a town councilor, and a community activist. Books will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.
