Alumni Journal - Vol82-86: 1997-2000

A piece from 1998 Alumni Journal tellilng the story of Brian Thomas's return to Vietnam.

Brain Thomas, Ursinus's athletics director and baseball coach, who retired in 2012, had served in Vietnam as an officer in the Army. Back to Vietnam recounts his return to the country where he lost friends and nearly lost his life. In a search for closure, he returns to the area where he and his men were attacked and where he was wounded.

This story helps to show that Ursinus's connections with the Vietnam War do not stop as soon as the war ends.
