Hi Everyone -

Please join us for the next in our regular monthly series of free
Department of the Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lectures, entitled
"The Vietnam Veterans Memorial" on Tuesday, July 19th from 1:00 - 1:45 pm
in Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building's Rachel Carson
Room.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial recognizes and honors the men and women who
served in one of America's most divisive wars. The Maya Lin designed
memorial grew out of a need to heal the nation's wounds as America
struggled to reconcile different moral and political points of view. Even
though the memorial was conceived to make no political statement about the
war, it has brought about controversy, from the purpose of the memorial to
its original design to subsequent additions since its dedication in 1982.
Nevertheless, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is thought of as a place where
everyone, regardless of opinion, can come together to remember and honor
those who served.

Please join Park Ranger Paul O'Brian for a discussion of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial, from its turbulent origins and through its contentious
past to its current place today as one of our nation's most revered
memorials.

All that are interested are invited.  The Rachel Carson Room is located in
the basement level of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior
Building, towards the back of and adjacent to the Interior Department
cafeteria.  The Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building is
located at 1849 C Street, NW in Washington.  Space for the program is
limited so please go to the following link to register:
