RICHARD KOONTZ MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES: "VIETNAM ON MY SHOULDER: THE WAR THAT NEVER LEAVES"

1st Cavalry Division Officer LT Jay Snyder will talk about Fort Benning, Jump School, convoying to Vietnam, and how his experiences “in country” have shaped his life. He will discuss his personal training and development as a leader, as well as the ways that Vietnam and his experiences there have influenced and molded his careers, family, past, and future. Vietnam has woven through his life through the memorable experiences of his service, the penpal during his time in Vietnam who would become his wife, the growth of their family through an adoption of a young Vietnamese refugee, and the lingering effects of Agent Orange and PTSD.
