RICHARD KOONTZ MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES: "RICHARD BURTON: PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS, VIETNAM, AND WHAT I LEARNED THERE"
Richard Burton will discuss his experiences as a Psychological Operations Officer with the 1st Marine Division from November 1969 - November 1970, even though he went to Vietnam as an Army Infantry Officer/Airborne/Special Forces. He went to Vietnam believing what the government told him and came home very disillusioned. He was told not to wear his uniform when he came home, as the country was torn apart by the war. The country could not separate the veteran from the war, and the veteran suffered as a result. After 45 years, he is now able to talk about his experiences and how meeting a group of Vietnam veterans has given him a clearer perspective on his Vietnam experiences.
