In Our Year of War, Lt. Gen. Daniel P. Bolger (retired) tells the gritty and engaging story of two brothers who went to war in Vietnam, fought in the same unit, and saved each other's life. One supported the war, the other detested it, but they fought it together. Joining General Bolger for today's discussion are those brothers: Chuck and Tom Hagel. A book signing will follow the program.

Presented in part by the Lawrence F. O’Brien Family, Pritzker Military Museum & Library, AARP, FedEx Corporation, and the National Archives Foundation. Additional support provided by the Maris S. Cuneo Foundation, The Eliasberg Family Foundation, Inc., and HISTORYⓇ.

The Opening Weekend Celebration is presented in part by L3 Technologies, Inc., and Bell Helicopter.
