Registration is required. There are 1,000 seats available.

As American troops continue their steady exodus on the last day of their ground war in Vietnam, Lieutenant Joe Tallon is shot down by an enemy missile. Forced to eject at a dangerously low altitude from their OV-1 Mohawk, Joe and his technical observer, Specialist-5 Daniel Richards, land in the flaming wreckage. Lieutenant Tallon survives but Specialist Richards does not.
Painstakingly recreated from wartime letters and remembrances and contextualized by contemporary news accounts, 100 Days in Vietnam is a collaboration between Joe and his son, Matthew A. Tallon, Ed.M.'09, Administrative Director of Faculty Support Services at HGSE.

With an introduction by Bridget Terry Long, Ph.D.'00, Dean of the Faculty of Education and Saris Professor of Education and Economics at HGSE and in conversation with Susan Moore Johnson, Ed.D.'81, Jerome T. Murphy Research Professor in Education at HGSE


This event will be live-captioned and is open to the public.
