Through The Eyes of John Hosier

 John Hosier served with the 173rd Airborne Brigade as a long range recon specialist. After he was wounded he returned to the country and served as a combat photographer. He retired after twenty years service then earned a PHD from the University of Hawaii which led him back to Vietnam to work on several beneficial projects to help the Vietnamese People.

These days he lives in Michigan and devotes much time to traveling around the country and sharing his “Through the Eyes” on the Vietnam war Exhibit. Everywhere he goes with his display the response is tremendous ranging from laughter to tears.

If you get the opportunity and you are a Vietnam Veteran you should go and see it. "Through The Eyes" display will be open to the public from 8:00 AM - Thursday, May 25 through Noon - Monday, May 29
