U.S. Air Force veteran Jim Wendt gives a presentation to 8th grade Social Studies students.

U.S. Air Force veteran Jim Wendt, who served in the Vietnam War, spoke to 8th grade social studies students at Howard L. Goff Middle School on Friday. He talked about his experience in Vietnam where he repaired radar and weapons systems on aircraft. He also showed photos of his base, his work and the landscape of the country.

“It’s nice to talk with young kids and relate some of my experiences,” said Mr. Wendt, who spent 13 months in Vietnam.

Wendt has spoken to his daughter Carol Lichorowiec’s Social Studies class each of the past 10 years.

Lichorowiec’s class learned about the Vietnam War a few weeks ago, so her father’s presentation gave the students a view of the war through a soldier’s eyes.

“Too many times history is dismissed as being a memorization of names and dates and major events. I like to try to bring history to life for my students, and what better way than having a person visit my classroom who witnessed the history my students are learning first hand?,” Mrs. Lichorowiec said. “Each year, I find that the students are engaged, attentive, and learn more about the war in Vietnam from my father than from any other source!”
