LECTURE: "A WAR WE CAN'T FORGET" 

Vietnam helicopter pilot Ed Ramon talks about his two tours in South Vietnam (1966-1968) and his difficulty in adjusting to civilian life upon returning home.  It wasn’t until after the suicides of his father and brother, both combat veterans, that he took it upon himself to study Post Traumatic Stress.  With the help of author Chris Brady, Ramon tells that story in a book of the same title.  Donation Requested.
