One of the darkest chapters of the Vietnam War was the My Lai Massacre. On the 50th anniversary this past fall a Memorial Exhibit was put on display at the Grange Hall in Whallonsburg, New York to remember the thousands of Vietnamese people who were executed, and the cover-up. Veterans Coming Home Producer Michael Hansen talks with the artist who designed the exhibit, and with local Vietnam Veteran, Pete Conroy, about the wounds the memorial reopened.
Watch extended interview with Pete Conroy: Pete talks about an emotional exchange he had with a Vietnam war protestor that he met at the My Lai Exhibit.
