Friday, August 22, 2014, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The Peace & Justice Center and Veterans for Peace #71 invite you to learn the truth about the Gulf of Tonkin "incident." Local Vet for Peace, Fred Ptucha, was a young Naval officer off the coast of Vietnam in August 1964 and received the cables about what was supposedly happening in the Gulf of Tonkin - cables that would be used to justify increasing U.S. aggression in Vietnam. Fred will speak about his experience and what it meant to him and the United States. 

There will also be poetry by veterans and music by Hop Head (pop, rock, jazz, blues and folk) with vet Peter Tracy, Kim Richards and James Tepperman.
