Spring 2019 Schedule 

Latinos in War and Peace during the vietnam war era

Tuesday, February 5, 4:30 p.m.
Juan Cornoado
Martha Miller Center for Global Communication, Fried Hemenway Auditorium 135

Juan's lecture will focus on the Latino experience, both on the home-front and in the battlefield during the Vietnam War Era. The talk will look at both the antiwar movement and the significant military contribution of Latinos, while also focusing on the importance religion played in their community. While religion and faith in God strengthened some of the soldiers, their religious beliefs also created conflict within themselves as it did not coincide with warfare.
