History in a Pint - August 21

History in a Pint - August 21

Veterans Memorial Hall, a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society, announces its next event in the local history discussion series “History in a Pint.”  The presentation entitled “The U.S. Navy’s Involvement in the Vietnam War,” will take place at Carmody Irish Pub and Brewing, and will begin at 5:30 pm on Tuesday August 21st. This presentation will focus on one of the least known chapters of the Vietnam War – the story of the Navy as told through the lens of Dwight “Deac” Nelson.

The event is free and open to the public. We advise guests to park in the parking ramp behind and connected to the Sheraton, which is across the street from Carmody’s.

Veterans Memorial Hall was established in 1910 and is a joint program of the St. Louis County Historical Society and the military service veterans of northeastern Minnesota with a mission to gather, preserve, interpret, and promote the rich and diverse human experiences of veterans, their families and communities, through museum, archival and educational programs. Its website, www.vets-hall.org, features more than 6,000 veteran stories.
