U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry will deliver The Vietnam War Summit's keynote address. The secretary will reflect on the myriad ways in which our nation's relationship with Vietnam has changed—and the country itself has been transformed economically and socially—since his service in Vietnam with the U.S. Navy. Kerry's speech will come a month before he joins President Obama for his first visit to the country.
