Vietnam Veteran Talks with AP and Sophomore Students

On Monday, December 14, Fred Shine – Burlington resident and Vietnam veteran – came in to give a presentation to Mrs. Janovitz’s AP Literature classes and Mr. Lally’s sophomores. The AP students have been reading literature that discusses the role of the American soldier in society, and Mr. Lally’s sophomores had just completed the Vietnam novel, The Things They Carried. In his presentation, Mr. Shine discussed his experiences as a soldier, and his hard work in creating memorials for four American soldiers from Wilmington who died in Vietnam.
