From Simpson to Saigon
Wednesday, March 20, 2019, 6:00 p.m. (Reception) 7:00 p.m. (Event), Hubbell Hall, Kent Campus Center
Gerry Berry, a Simpson alum of the class of 1967, will tell his story of evacuating the US ambassador from South Vietnam mere hours before the North Vietnamese troops marched into Saignon in 1975. Following Berry's talk, there will be a panel discussion with two fellow alums, featuring Doug Simmons and Tom Schmidt who also graduated from Simpson with the class of '67 and were marine aviators during the war.
Mark your calendars as we hope to see you at this wonderful event!
