Chapter 542 Hosts Documentary Showing

John Travers, upper right, was an all-state basketball player before he was a war hero.

Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 542 and the Central Pennsylvania Roundtable recently hosted a viewing of the Vietnam documentary All Were Lost … Then Along Came John.

The 90-minute documentary tells the story of Harrisburg legend John Travers from his youth as an all-state basketball player to Vietnam, where he rescued more than 2,000 wounded soldiers as a pilot and was decorated for bravery.

Held at Chapter 542’s hall, the showing was open to the public and free of charge. For additional information about Travers, who is now coping with a rare disease of the nervous system, visit PennLive’s recent profile.
