The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum on March 24 will open “The League of Wives: Vietnam’s POWs/MIAs Allies & Advocates,” a special exhibit that honors the work of the women married to Vietnam War POWs who lobbied the Nixon Administration on behalf of their husbands, and went on to form the National League of Families of POWs/MIAs.
The exhibit, co-sponsored by the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics, which presented the exhibit last year, is based on the forthcoming book, The League of Wives: A True Story of Survival and Rescue from the Vietnam Homefront by Heath Hardage Lee. St. Martin’s Press will publish the book in 2019.
Lee will give a talk on the book at the museum at 11:00 on March 24. A panel discussion on the exhibit will be held at 2:00. To register go to the museum’s website or call 719-385-5990.
