At our September 18 Civitan meeting, we were honored to have as our speaker, Mr. Allen Broach, Publisher Emiratis Triad City Beat and a well-known Greensboro resident of many years. Allen’s most recent 15-minutes of fame was highlighted in a November 9, 2019 article in the Greensboro News & Record recounting his service in Vietnam where he received two bronze stars, one for meritorious service and the other for valor and two purple hearts for wounds suffered in combat and from which he still carries the shrapnel today, 50+ years later.
But his two years in Vietnam was just a sliver of a broad and interesting life that continues today. We were fortunate to have him come to talk to us and share with us how “He’s Been Busy for 73 Years”. The link is a video of him telling his story. I am certain you will enjoy it as much as we did.
