A Tiger Among Us: A Story of Valor in Vietnam’s A Shau Valley
  • Date: Wednesday, July 18, 2018
  • Time: 4:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

In March 1966, then-sergeant, and future Medal of Honor recipient, Bennie Adkins and 16 other Green Berets, held their undermanned and unfortified position at Camp A Shau along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail. In A Tiger Among Us, Adkins tells the story of how this small group of warriors out-fought and out-maneuvered their enemies, and how a remarkable number of them lived to tell about it.
