Book release – 'The Morenci Marines: A Tale of Small Town America and the Vietnam War'

In 1966, nine young men left the Arizona desert mining camp of Morenci to serve their country in the far-flung jungles of Vietnam. Ultimately, only three survived.

CU is proud to host Kyle Longley for a book release and signing of The Morenci Marines: A Tale of Small Town America and the Vietnam War on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 6:30 p.m. in the Benson Earth Science Building room 180.
