The story of an unusual friendship that began 37 years ago with a Vietnam War dogfight was recounted April 20 at WKU.
Retired Brig. Gen. Dan Cherry has written “My Enemy…My Friend,” a book about the dogfight, the efforts to restore the F-4 Phantom and his unlikely meeting and friendship with Vietnamese Mig-21 pilot Nguyen Hong My.
A tree planting ceremony to honor their friendship took place near the Guthrie Tower. At 7:30 p.m., they presented “My Enemy…My Friend” at Mass Media and Technology Hall Auditorium. The WKU events were sponsored by the Office of the Provost and The Center for Gifted Studies.
