Art Beltrone of the Vietnam Graffiti Project at Speaker's Series

Today's Speaker Series brought us Art Beltrone and the Vietnam Graffiti Project, which was formed after Art discovered graffiti artifacts left by soldiers aboard the General Nelson M. Walker, a Vietnam War troop transport ship.
The organization's mission is “…to collect, preserve, and make available for display to the public artifacts from various troop transport ships used during conflicts in which the United States is currently engaged, was engaged in the past, or will be engaged in the future.” Art brought along a fascinating collection of the artifacts, and reminded students that history is all around us and deserves to be preserved.
