The Vietnam War: Lessons and Legacies Symposium


More than 50 years after America’s official involvement in Vietnam, questions remain about how that war shaped us politically, culturally, and socially, at the national, state, and local levels.

On Oct. 27 and 28, 2016, the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) hosted a special event exploring the impact of the Vietnam War.

The symposium featured experts, including many who courageously served the U.S. in Vietnam, discussing the lessons and legacies of the war from a variety of perspectives.
