On May 7th 2012, nine veterans met with Winchester Thurston School eleventh graders to share experiences and stories from their service during the Vietnam War.  The accounts below include these student interviews as well as reflections based on these conversations, all of which were conducted as part of a U.S. History class and The City as Our Campus program (directed by Ms. Teresa DeFlitch). Special thanks to Dr. Alexis Macklin at the Senator John Heinz History Center.
