Linebacker Two Operations over N. Vietnam
Pacific Coast Air Museum member Charley Taylor will speak to us about "Line Backer Two - December 1972" A Naval Aviator's perspective of what occurred to get the North Vietnam to sign peace accords that resulted in the release of the American POWs held in North Vietnam and China.
