Vietnam war conference at Texas Tech

The Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University opened its triennial conference last week on Vietnam, bringing together a wide diversity of academics, Vietnam veterans, doctoral students, government officials and others. Much of the discussion at the conference focused on improved U.S.-Vietnam relations, with the current ambassador to Vietnam Michael Marine and his predecessor Amb. Raymond Burghardt both noting cooperating between the two countries in the business, humanitarian, defense and other sectors. High-level diplomats from Vietnam were invited, including the Deputy Foreign Minister, but they cancelled at the last moment. (Ft. Worth Star Telegram, March 18).
