Campus Speaker to Discuss My Lai Massacre, Lieutenant William Calley Trial

It was not the first nor the only war crime committed by American soldiers, but the massacre of Vietnamese villagers at the village of Son My during the Vietnam War was the most notorious.

A Lieutenant named William Calley was eventually put on trial at a court martial proceeding and convicted for the incident.

Tomorrow, Thursday, April 20th the civilian attorney to represented Calley will be speaking in Alumni Memorial Union Room 227 at 4:00 p.m.

His name is Richard Kay, and the talk is being sponsored by the Marquette History Department, the History honorary society Phi Alpha Theta, and the Political Science honorary society Pi Sigma Alpha.

People interested in the Vietnam War, or in U.S. military history or in the way justice is administered in the armed services will not want to miss this presentation.

There will be a reception afterward.
