Local Veterans to Offer Program
Two local veterans will offer a free public presentation at North Lake County Public Library in Polson on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. The program will focus on the highly acclaimed book “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien. Everyone is welcome, and refreshments will be served.
The speakers will be Sgt. Chuck Lewis and LCpl Tomy Parker. Both are U. S. Marine Corps veterans.
“The Things They Carried” is a collection of stories about an American platoon in the Vietnam War. It is a classic work of American literature, and is considered one of the finest books of the era. The work is fictional, rather than being a traditional nonfictional historical account.
