Another Small Conversation Leads from Farm Fields to the Battlefield

1/1/70

During an unexpected conversation with John Vann, the legendary American leader in Vietnam, Amb. Quinn recalls how Vann made a bet that he knew more about Duc Thanh District than Amb. Quinn did, even though Quinn was the Senior Advisor. That bet leads to a small question that further reshapes Amb. Quinn’s future, including a new leadership position and an array of extraordinary experiences.
