Holmdel, NJ (September 29, 2016) — Bill Linderman’s life changed in the summer of 1965 by one knock of the door. He had been drafted into the Vietnam War. Bill spent a year with the 148th Ordnance Company in the Mekong delta of Vietnam. He came back physically unscathed, but with a brain filled with images of the conflict he had witnessed.

 

Now, Bill is in his sixth year as the Executive Director of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation in Holmdel, NJ. There, he devotes his time to making sure New Jersey’s Vietnam Veterans who lost their lives during the conflict in Southeast Asia are not forgotten, but honored and remembered for their supreme sacrifice.

Bill is available to speak to schools, organizations and businesses around New Jersey and share the education and learning available at the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial and Educational Center.

On the first Saturday of each month, the Foundation also offers tours of the Memorial led by Veteran Tour Guides, providing unique opportunities to hear first-hand accounts and perspectives about the Vietnam War and Era.
