LUBBOCK – The Vietnam War continues to evoke strong emotions among Americans 30 years
after the end of the conflict. Speakers at the Texas Tech University Vietnam Center’s
fifth Triennial Symposium, March 17-19, will examine many aspects of the war and what
makes it relevant to today’s society.
Among the speakers for this year’s symposium are:
• John Prados, senior analyst with the National Security Archive, who will compare
intelligence-gathering methods used in Vietnam and Iraq;
• Edwin Moise, history professor at Clemson University, who will compare the Gulf
of Tonkin incident used to justify war in Vietnam with the specter of weapons of mass
destruction raised to justify war in Iraq;
• Marc Jason Gilbert, history professor at North Georgia College and State University,
who will compare nation building attempts in South Vietnam to the January elections
• Jerome Corsi, author of “Unfit For Command,” who will discuss the Vietnam War’s
effect on election-year politics in 2004;
• Terry DuBose, a Vietnam veteran who served from 1967-1968 and became the Texas regional
coordinator for Vietnam Veterans Against the War, who will respond to advertisements
commissioned by anti-Kerry groups during the 2004 presidential election.
