Dr. Milam was an advisor to the ARVN in 1971 and is currently an Associate Professor in History at Texas Tech. In the spring of 2011, he will travel to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) to teach “America’s Historical Role in International Relations” at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities. At Texas Tech Dr. Milam teaches classes on US history, the Vietnam War, and military history. His Vietnam classes are among the most popular offered. Currently Dr. Milam is accompaning Vietnam Center Director Dr. Steve Maxner and a group of Texas Tech students on a study abroad trip visiting locations in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. He has previously received the TTU President’s Excellence in Teaching Award and the Distinguished Faculty Award, and was recently named an academic fellow for the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.
Since his arrival at Texas Tech, Dr. Milam has been a great support of the Center and Archive and a fixture at our conferences and events. While we will miss his presences next spring, we wish him the best with this great opportunity.
