The Office of Alumni Relations and Dartmouth Club of Hawaii organized a Dartmouth educational program in Honolulu, Hawaii, featuring presentations by James Wright on the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941 and its aftermath, and on the way Americans have remembered and memorialized the country's wars and those who have sacrificed in them.
In preparation for his book about the Vietnam War, Wright traveled to Vietnam. See coverage of the trip at http://now.dartmouth.edu/2014/10/james-wright-visits-vietnam-to-retrace-wars-history/?utm_source=dhome&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=dhome_carousel3
Celebrating the 70th anniversary of D-Day landings, the Wrights participated in the Dartmouth Alumni "Celtic Lands" trip on the Le Boreal ship. James Wright delivered two lectures on the voyage on the consequences of the idea of the "Greatest Generation" and on American war memorials.
