Your Opinion Matters

This past May, we conducted an online survey asking you, our readers, for feedback on the Record. To the 700 of you who responded - our heartfelt thanks. Check back soon for a summary of insightful survey takeaways. -Editor


In the summer issue of the Record, an ad on page 45 stated that 22 Norwich men died in Vietnam. It has been brought to our attention that there were at least 23, and possibly more. William "Billy" Aiken, Class of 1972, was the last Norwich casualty to be returned home from Vietnam. We are currently researching others. If you know of someone who should be included among Norwich's Vietnam dead but is not listed here, please contact Laurie J. LaMothe, Director of Planned Giving, at 802-485-2028 or llamothe@norwich.edu.
