What Remains: Bringing America’s Missing Home from the Vietnam War
  • Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2020
  • Time: 12:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater

For many families the Vietnam War remains unsettled. Nearly 1,600 Americans are still unaccounted for. In What Remains, professor Sarah E. Wagner tells the stories of America’s missing service members and introduces us to the scientists and men and women who seek to bring the missing back home. Through their experiences she examines the ongoing toll of America’s most fraught war. A book signing follows the program.
