Vietnam: Dealing with Explosive Remnants of War

December 7, 2016, 12:00 PM


Steve Ball, a retired U.S. Army Colonel and MMGF Board Member, will give a talk on current efforts to address the ongoing problems associated with unexploded munitions left from wars in Vietnam and its neighbors, Cambodia and Laos, and what actions are being taken by Vietnam and partnering countries to alleviate the associated damaging social and economic problems.

Steve retired from the Army in 2005 after over 27 years of active service. His last tour of duty was as the U.S. Defense Attaché to Vietnam. After his tour he has returned to Vietnam on two occasions working for humanitarian organizations operating largely in the central provinces of Vietnam. He spent last year as the Vietnam Country Director for Golden West Humanitarian Foundation, a nongovernmental organization working globally to safely and effectively remove explosive remnants of war.

Please register no later than Monday December 5. Contact Bonnie Sammons to register.
