The Minnesota Military Museum, in partnership with Twin Cities Public Television and Concordia University, present this 2019-20 series held at Concordia University’s Buetow Auditorium on the 3rd Monday of each month from September until May. Parking and admission are free (a small donation to the museum is appreciated). This new series is an opportunity for veterans and those interested in the war and its legacy to gather on a monthly basis to honor, remember and understand this tumultuous time.

This month’s roundtable event, POW in North Vietnam, features Navy, Air Force, and Marine pilots and aircrew who endured years of torture, hardship, and uncertainty after being shot down and captured. Navy F-4 Phantom “Back Seater” David Wheat was shot down over North Vietnam on October 17 1965 and held for 7 ½ years in various North Vietnamese prisons, including the Hanoi Hilton until his release in 1973. Mr. Wheat will discuss his naval service, being shot down and his experiences as a POW.
