North Central Michigan College presents “Out of Laos”

Thongsai Vangyi

Thongsai Vangyi

North Central Michigan College’s Luncheon Lecture will feature Thongsai Vangyi and his moving story of his family’s escape from Laos on Friday Dec. 11.


The program will be held in the College’s Library conference room.

Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon.

When the American military evacuated Saigon in 1975, many people were left behind, including thousands of Laotians who had aided the Central Intelligence Agency during the “secret war” across the border from Vietnam.

Because of his father’s ties with the U.S. as a member of the Royal Lao Army, Thongsai Vangyi and his family were able to escape on several of the last American military flights out.

He returns to North Central to tell a story of life, chaos and sacrifice in the midst of a war that few people will ever understand.

Reservations are required.

Call 231-348-6600 or email to reserve your place at the table.

Cost is $10. 

Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. 

The program begins at noon.
