Women In Vietnam: Personal Stories From Women Who Served is a free event that will feature three women who served in the Vietnam War describing their experiences and recounting the stories of their service. This educational discussion will be led by Beth DeAngelis, Director of the Sister Thea Bowman Center for Woman at Siena College. Together, the moderator and the panelists will explore what brought these women to the war, what they learned while serving and their thoughts on women's roles in war zones today. This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition 1969, which is on view now in the Vietnam Memorial Gallery of the Robert Abrams Justice Building for Law and Justice at the Empire State Plaza through January 2020. Visitors are encouraged to visit the exhibition before the event. The event will be held in the Albany Room at the Empire State Plaza, adjacent to Prime at the Plaza.
