LVMAC Tidbit: WWI History Symposium Second Round

April 25, 2018

[Editor’s Note: Considering this is the land of the “Bloody Buckets” and Bethlehem Steel was the largest shipbuilder of the time and armored the the modern Navy,  it is surprising how little interest our state or its government have shown in the 100th anniversary of a war which dramatically changed us once again.  This war completed our ascendance as world power in both the business and military senses of the word.  We Americans tend to think that what is, always was, because we rarely put our ear to the rail of history.  It is not so.  And history is useful towards the learning of what works and does not work, if this special nation is to avoid arrogance.  If  you know a high school history teacher or a history or sociology professor, you might want to mention this symposium to them.  ]

LVMAC Tidbit — Local Vietnam Veterans Memorial to be Dedicated

August 14, 2015

EAHS Vietnam Veterans Committee Logo 2013-195x285After years of hard work, the Easton Area High School Vietnam Veterans Memorial Committee has announced it will be conducting a dedication ceremony for its high school’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial on 29 August at 10 a.m.  The public is invited.

The memorial was erected to pay tribute to those who attended Easton Area High School and went off to serve in the Vietnam Conflict — some of whom never returned home.  It is one of the few such high school memorials in the nation.  Working strictly at a grassroots level, the effort is a stellar, everyman achievement, and speaks well of their community and our Lehigh Valley in regard to recognizing both the importance and price of military service to our nation.
