LIR and Y to host 'We Gotta Get Out of This Place' presentation on soundtrack of the Vietnam War

Nicolet College Learning in Retirement and the YMCA of the Northwoods have joined together to host a presentation likely to resonate with the baby boomer generation and music lovers alike.

According to a press release, the two groups have invited Doug Bradley from the University of Wisconsin-Madison to discuss the music of the Vietnam War at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 at the Pine Lake Town Hall.

Bradley is a veteran of the Vietnam War and has written two books, "DEROS Vietnam: Dispatches from the Air- Conditioned Jungle" and "We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War" (coauthored with Professor Craig Werner) which was named "Best Music Book of 2015" by Rolling Stone Magazine, the release states.

"We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War" places popular music at the heart of the American experience in Vietnam, the release states. The presentation explores how and why U.S. troops turned to music as a way of connecting to each other and the world back home and of coping with the complexities of the war they had been sent to fight.

Space is limited. Interested persons are encouraged to register early by calling the Y at 715-362-9622 or Learning In Retirement at 715-365-4491.

The Pine Lake Town Hall is located at 4197 River Road, Rhinelander.
