During this program, Northwest Public Television and Radio hosts look at the war through scenes of the PBS documentary and through the eyes of local veterans, including two in attendance, Bob Wakefield and George Stockton. This very rich program also features exhibit items, insights and encourages community conversation.

Whitman County Library was selected as one of 50 libraries in the U.S. and the only one in Washington State to receive a “Vietnam War” programming kit for use in community programs. This kit includes “The Vietnam War,” a 10-part, 18-hour documentary film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick along with the companion book “The Vietnam War: An Intimate History” by Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns. Both are now available for checkout by request from any library branch or the online catalog.
