Tonight (Thursday, September 25), we will have the privilege of watching a documentary about the Battle of Khe Sanh (January 21, 1968 through early April), during which about 6000 Marines held off a siege by somewhere between 20,000-40,000 North Vietnamese in the days before and during the Tet Offensive of 1968. Directors Ken and Betty Rodgers will be in the audience tonight, and will talk to the crowd afterward. Ken was at Khe Sanh during the fight and lived to tell the story the way it should be told.
The film will recount the battle from the point of view of the Marines who fought there. In the room, undoubtedly, will be many Vietnam War veterans. It will be a privilege to be there with them.
(If you are in the Boise area and want to watch the film, contact Betty at (208)340-8324.)
