History Mystery: Where’s Tommie Cole?

February 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

On February 11, 1966, the cover of Life Magazine featured a photo of a young Army medic in Vietnam, face bandaged, tending to his wounded comrades. The photo became iconic. It captured the mood of a war that was rapidly sliding into an uncertain future. The medic, Tommie L. Cole, was from Richmond, Virginia, and he was a hero. But a mystery remains: what happened to Tommie after this photograph was taken? On the 55th anniversary of the legendary Life Magazine cover, join Virginia War Memorial Director Clay Mountcastle to examine what clues we know about Tommie L. Cole and perhaps help solve the mystery of his whereabouts.
