Wine & Lecture: League of Wives
In partnership with the Dole Institute of Politics, the Coronado Historical Association has announced a new special exhibit about the wives of Vietnam POW's and their tireless advocacy work. The exhibit, opens at CHA in October 2019. The League of Wives: Vietnam’s POW/MIA Allies & Advocates, tells the story of the military wives who founded the organization that would later become the National League of POW/MIA Families.
For this special Wine & Lecture, CHA is proud to host Virginia-based historian and 2017 Dole Archives Curatorial Fellow Heath Hardage Lee. Lee curated the exhibit based on her book “The Reluctant Sorority: The True Story of Survival and Rescue from the Homefront.” During the Lecture, Lee will share stories and insights from the making of the book and exhibit. She will also interview some of Coronado's POW wives.
