Vets visited the school Jan. 23
ST. CHARLES – Vietnam War veteran Mike Pikulyk wanted to give St. Charles North High School students a glimpse of what fighting in a war was like.
"After we went out to the jungle, we spent about two to three weeks out there," Pikulyk said, in talking to a group of students on Thursday. "We are walking around, trying to get into a fight. We need to try to find them or they find us. So hopefully we're more prepared than they are."
Pikulyk and fellow Vietnam War veterans Duane Buttell, Jr., Dennis Larson and Richard Zawislak shared their experiences with the Modern American History students during several presentations.
