‘Yesterday’ Still Serving Today

Each year on Memorial Day, we are asked to remember those who sacrificed in the hope of preserving or creating something better, something bigger than themselves. It can be hard to do. Memories of war are often traumatic, and those who haven’t experienced it first-hand may find it easier to look the other way. So when an organization seeks out the experiences of someone who has been there, it is a big deal. The Vietnam Center and Sam Johnson Vietnam Archive at Texas Tech University wanted to include a copy of Needham resident Tom Keating’s memoir of his time during the Vietnam Conflict.
