HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - An Emmy-nominated film about the Vietnam War based on a Southern Miss professor's book will be screened on the Hattiesburg campus Thursday night.
"Bothers in War" will be shown at 6 p.m. in Room 108 of the Liberal Arts Building.
The film, which originally aired on the National Geographic Channel, was inspired by professor Andrew Wiest's book, "The Boys of '67: Charlie Company's War in Vietnam."
It has been nominated for an Emmy Award for best long-form documentary.
Before the screening at 5 p.m., Wiest will sign copies of his book.
A question and answer session will follow the screening. It will include John Young, one of the veterans profiled in the book and documentary.
