Dr. Joseph Fahey, a retired Manhattan College theology professor, will speak about the life of Charles Liteky.
Father Charles J. Liteky served as a chaplain in the U.S. Army and received the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War. On July 29, 1986, he placed the medal at the base of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., as he took the next step in his personal pilgrimage from a Roman Catholic priest, military chaplain and Vietnam hawk to a civilian warrior for peace.
Dr. Fahey will speak about Charles Liteky’s "Pilgrimage to Peace" and the publishing of Mr. Liteky’s memoir, "Renunciation."
