PBS Salutes Veterans

Our free screening of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War” and our own “Vietnam in the Carolinas” at Halton Theater was attended by over 600 people. Vietnam Veterans in attendance received a commemorative pin from the Department of Defense recognizing their service. This is just one way PBS Charlotte serves our region with community engagement events.
