Dave Bushy, “The World Looked Away: Vietnam after the War”
October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
The Vietnam War ended on April 30, 1975. Millions of Vietnamese on both sides of the conflict were killed. Nearly 60,000 Americans were among those who died. You have all seen or heard about the war in the recent Ken Burns series: “The Vietnam War.” But what happened after the country of South Vietnam no longer ceased to exist? What happened to the former South Vietnamese military officers and men, to their families and to their country? The newly-released book “The World Looked Away – Vietnam After the War: Quoc Pham’s Story,” strives to tell that story.
DAVE BUSHY is a former U.S. Army officer who was on active duty shortly after American involvement in the Vietnam War ended. He served as an armor and counterintelligence officer and then went on to a career as an airline pilot and senior executive. Bushy is a graduate of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. He earned his M.S. from the University of New Haven in West Haven, Connecticut and attended the Gestalt International Study Center in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Dave is now an executive coach and resides in Eastham, Massachusetts with his wife, Lisa.
