From Chicago to Vietnam: A Memoir of War

A Free talk by Michael Duffy

In the early hours of January 31, 1968, eighty thousand North Vietnamese and Vietcong troops attacked every major city and military base in South Vietnam. The perimeter of the massive Saigon Airbase, Tan Son Nhut was breached and fighting raged all morning. Both gritty and intimate, From Chicago to Vietnam tells the powerful story of the ensuing epic battle, the Tet Offensive, from the perspective of one brave American soldier, Michael Duffy, whose life, like so many others, would be changed forever. Join Michael Duffy for a fascinating talk about his experience. Copies of his book, thirty years in the making, will be available for purchase.
