​In conjunction with the debut of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's ten-part documentary on the Vietnam War in 2017, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Illinois Public Media/WILL-TV co-sponsored a panel discussion with Vietnam War era nurse Connie Edwards, draft resister Timothy Kendall, Vietnamese boat person Patrick Lam and MAC-V advisor and engineer officer John Raschke. The program began with the airing of a short excerpt from the documentary, followed by a moderated discussion and questions from the audience.
