'American's Veterans' is a talk given by Ira Cooperman to the Chautauqua Men's Club on August 19, 2016 covering his experience serving as an intelligence officer during the Vietnam War. He recounts the loss of fellow Air Force First Lieutenant, Vincent Chiarello, who was aboard an electronic mission aircraft shot down by a North Vietnamese fighter airplane over Laos in July 1966, subsequent US Air Force communications with the Chiarello family, and return of Vincent's remains several decades later. Discussion during the program also covered current programs for veterans.
