The Van Wert Historical Society will welcome Judy Fischer, a retired teacher from Delphos, for her presentation “Vietnam Today” at 2 p.m. March 30 in the society’s annex.
“Vietnam Today” is based on a need to find answers. Fischer, her brother and husband, Vern, traveled to Vietnam in 2012. Their trip was the result of the need to explore the geography, people and culture of a country that played a paramount role in their early adult years. All three experienced the war from different perspectives. Judy’s brother lost two close friends in the war. Vern was serving in the military at the time but did not serve a Vietnam tour. Judy was a college student at BGSU, experiencing the protests and demonstrations. Together these three travelers took at tour of the country trying to make sense of the conflict and experience its impact on the country.
Fischer has a bachelor’s degree from BGSU and a master’s from the University of Dayton.
