Former Army Officer Visits Vietnam Class


On February 2, 2012 Mr. Wetzel’s Vietnam class was given an inside look into the Vietnam War through guest speaker Mr. Schrum. Mr. Schrum, a former Army officer and graduate of Latrobe, gave students his perspective of fighting in the Vietnam War from a “kid from Latrobe.”  During his visit he explained how he got involved, what it was like in Vietnam, and the differences in age from current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the Vietnam War and World War II.
