Vietnam veterans will gather at Florida’s Fantasy of Flight museum in June to share their personal stories of strength, survival and patriotism during America’s longest and most controversial military conflict on foreign soil.
During the Legends & Legacies Symposium Series: Reflections of Vietnam, several veterans will interact with guests in open forum/question-and-answer sessions, followed by meet-and-greet/autograph signing sessions.
“We recognize that the Vietnam War is an emotional and complex subject and we invite the public to hear firsthand accounts from the brave men who stood up to serve,” said Kim Long, General Manager of Fantasy of Flight.
The symposium is presented along with the annual Military Collector’s Show on Saturday, June 9, showcasing collectibles for sale from the Civil War to the Vietnam era including uniforms, medals, insignia, and war relics, among other memorabilia.
“We are also proud to once again offer history buffs a chance to browse and purchase military collectibles dating back to the Civil War during our Military Collectors Show,” added Long. “Even those who aren’t collectors will be amazed at the incredible array of artifacts.”
Fantasy of Flight is one of the only attractions in the country to assemble military veterans and their families for panel discussions and to share their compelling personal accounts and unique perspectives with the public.
