Smithsonian Channel Remembers Vietnam with Jan Scruggs

VietnamFounder and President of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, and Founder of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Jan Scruggs, will join the Smithsonian Channel’s David Royle on BlogTalkRadio to discuss Memorial Day and the Smithsonian Channel documentary ‘Remembering Vietnam: The Wall at 25’ tonight at 6pm ET (click to listen).

SMITH_PMS_VERT_BLACK_sizesThe Smithsonian Channel and Showtime will celebrate the heroism of the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces this Memorial Day by airing two award-winning documentaries from the Smithsonian Channel, including REMEMBERING VIETNAM: THE WALL AT 25.

Today on BlogTalkRadio get a preview of the documentary, which goes back in time to tell the story of the memorial through the eyes of those who conceived it, those who were instrumental in pushing it through bureaucratic and political resistance, those intimately involved with its 25-year history, and those it honors. Above all, the documentary tells the story of a place that is more than a memorial – – it is a place where old wounds are healed.

The documentary will air on the Smithsonian Channel as part of a special weekend of programming on Smithsonian Channel throughout Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-26.
