In collaboration with NET - Nebraska Public Television, PBS held a screening of the Academy Award nominated film, Last Days in Vietnam. This kicked of a week long engagement campaign featuring the Vietnam era veterans and the Vietnamese-American community.
The screening was a huge SUCCESS! Talent from the film presented engaging accounts during the event. CPT Kiem Do and Cmdr. Hugh Doyle (featured right) shared their experiences from 40 years ago with the 300 guests in attendance, as well as continued speaking throughout the day to 4 high schools and 500 students.
This began a month long of screenings and engagement events by PBS Stories of Service and local member stations leading up to the on-air broadcast of Last Days in Vietnam on April 28th, 8pm EST.
