For Better or For Worse: The Journey of a POW and His Wife By Phyllis and Paul Galanti

Presenter: 
Phyllis and Paul Galanti
Duration: 
(01:10:05)

On June 11, 2009, Phyllis and Paul Galanti delivered a Banner Lecture entitled “For Better or For Worse: The Journey of a POW and His Wife.” In June 1966, Lt. Cmdr. Paul Galanti was shot down over Vietnam and endured nearly seven years of captivity. His wife Phyllis played a leading role in the efforts of the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia to publicize the plight of their loved ones and to secure their release. The Galantis presented an illustrated lecture recounting this dramatic story.

Their talk was held in conjunction with the exhibition Bring Paul Home: Phyllis Galanti and Vietnam War POWs, which is based on the collection given by Phyllis and Paul Galanti to the Virginia Museum of History & Culture. (Introduction by Paul A. Levengood)
