Meet author Reid F. Tillery and his friend, Vietnam Veteran William "Bill" Boe and come away with a deeper understanding of the challenges and hardships of an American infantryman in Vietnam.

Enjoy a conversation with Vietnam Veteran Bill Boe and his friend, author Reid Tillery as they discuss Bill's experiences in Vietnam and the book based on these experiences, LZ Bingo.

In the summer of 1967 20-year-old William K. Boe entered the Vietnam war. Twice wounded during his one-year tour of duty, he endured some of the war's hottest moments, including the Tet offensive. He served honorably, facing an onslaught of bullets, mortars, rockets, hand grenades, and land mines. Through Bill's account, the reader gains a vicarious understanding of the day-to-day life and challenges of an American infantryman in Vietnam. This book's primary purpose is to honor those who made it home and those who did not by telling their story through Bill's eyes and ears. Written in the form of a novel, what makes Bill's true story so compelling is that his experiences likely are similar to those of many other men who served in the infantry in Vietnam.

A book signing with both men will follow the talk, books will be available for purchase.
