QUANG TRI PROVINCE, Vietnam — The Vietnam odyssey of MTSU alumnus William “Bud” Morris came full circle in March. The Murfreesboro native called his sojourn with the university’s Vietnam study-abroad class “the greatest experience of my life.”
Nine students signed up for a pioneering history course that required them to compare Vietnam and the Vietnam War as depicted in American media with what they learned on a 14-day tour of the country this spring.
Morris, now an insurance agent who bleeds State Farm red and MTSU blue, returned March 21 to the area where he served with the First Brigade, Fifth Infantry Mechanized Division of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. To read the full story, go to http://mtsunews.com/mtsu-in-vietnam-morris.
