Vietnam Veteran Gives Back to Bloomsburg University

Fifty years have passed since Blaine Cooper returned home from the Vietnam War. Pictures of Cooper's experiences before, during, and after the war were recently unveiled and dedicated to Bloomsburg University. This project was nearly two years in the making.

"This was one of the highlights of my time here at Bloomsburg University, and it was mentally enjoyable both professionally and personally," said Professor David Fazzino, who worked with Cooper on the project. Cooper admittedly suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, so the process of going through all of the pictures was very difficult.

"I lost quite a few friends over there and a couple of people I went to school with," Cooper said. "It was tough." ̶ WNEP TV-News
