For twenty years, 1955-1975, the U.S. was involved in a conflict which came to be known as the Vietnam War. It took its toll on lives with 3 million killed (58,000+ Americans). Texas Tech welcomes the perfect speaker on this Veteran’s Day weekend. For more than five years Dave Carey, former U.S. Navy officer was held as a prisoner of war in Hanoi. He will be speaking at Texas Tech University’s Allen Theater in the Student Union Building November 10, Thursday at 7.p.m.

 

After returning from Vietnam, Carey held several command positions. During his service, he has been awarded the Legion of Merit, five Bronze Stars, two Meritorious Service Medals, the Purple Heart, eight Air Medals and the Navy Commendation Medal. His message emphasizes the power of the human spirit to triumph over adversity. For more information contact Mary Saffell, at The Vietnam Center and Archive, Texas Tech University, 806-742-9010 or mary.saffell@ttu.edu.
