The PBS documentary The Vietnam War by renowned film maker Ken Burns and Lynn Novick is a remarkable multi-part film. James Lapp, a Teachers for Vietnam board member, taught co-director Lynn Novick Vietnamese so that she could interview people for the current PBS documentary on the Vietnam War. We’re proud that James helped with this historic documentary and that he continues to help make our organization the best it can be!
