Honoured to have our Vietnam veterans on the panel, they'll cover topics such as the roles played by nurses and medical staff, the experiences of National Servicemen, the RAAF and their own personal reflections on the war and the experiences they endured during it.

Head to the Auditorium for this discussion and you are encouraged to arrive early to take a look at the Shrine's Vietnam exhibitions as part of your visit.

Behind the Wire - Images and stories of Vietnam veterans, is open to visitors at the Shrine Visitor Centre from 10am to 5pm (last entry 4.30pm) from 13 Aug to 23 Oct 2016.
