Guest speaker: Lt. Col. (Ret.) Barry Bridger is a highly decorated United States Air Force veteran. On Jan. 23, 1967, he was shot down over Son Tay, North Vietnam, by a surface-to-air missile, and was captured by the North Vietnamese and imprisoned. For more than six years, he was one of about 350 Americans held captive at the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” prison, where a fellow POW included U.S. Sen. John McCain.

Write Letters to North Dakota Soldiers
TRIO Veteran Upward Bound is partnering with the Equity and Diversity Center to write letters for the North Dakota soldiers of the 818th EN CO (Engineering Company) stationed in Afghanistan who are currently not receiving any mail or support.

There will be a contact table in the Memorial Union from 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM. There will also be a table outside Century Theater, before and following the talk by guest speaker, Lt. Col. (Ret.) Barry Bridger. Thank you for helping us remember and encourage our veterans.
