In 2023, the Army Heritage Center Foundation will continue its webinar program on two Wednesdays each month, avoiding the third Wednesday of each month so as not to compete with the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center's Perspectives in Military History lecture series.
As always, if you miss one of the webinars, you can find it on the Army Heritage Center Foundation (AHCFoundation) YouTube Channel. If you signed up for the program and missed the webinar, you will receive a link to the webinar/lecture.
A Dove Among Eagles with Linda Patterson and COL (R) Frank Hancock
Date & Time: July 12, 2023, 7:00 PM
This conversation will highlight the efforts of Linda Patterson, who became a hero to many Soldiers and their families. Her story begins when she sets foot in Vietnam -- Christmas of 1968 -- during wartime, with no government approval, and her efforts to honor the legacy of service of her brother who had died in combat. For 50 years, she's proven that those of us at home can do much to raise the morale of our military's men and women so they can "soar as high as the clouds," as her brother Joe had written in his last letter. Without realizing it and by simply doing her best to honor her brother's memory, Linda has become a source of inspiration for many. COL (R) Frank Hancock and his Soldiers was a recipient of Linda's support during Operation Desert Storm. As the Commander of the 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment. He will discuss the significance of her support.
