Join us to hear about political cartoonist Jeff Danziger’s new book, Lieutenant Dangerous: A Vietnam War Memoir.
Danziger served in the US Army 1967-1971, including one year in Vietnam in the First Air Cavalry, the 11th ACR and other units. He received the Bronze Star and the Air Medal.
After leaving the military he taught high school English classes in East Montpelier, VT. He eventually taught specialized classes in journalism and expository writing at an advanced level. He was the political cartoonist for the Christian Science Monitor between 1987 and 1997.
Danziger was moved to write about his own experiences with war after speaking with a group of today’s military-age men and women. Lieutenant Dangerous is full of illustrations Danziger drew specifically for the book.
Danziger is syndicated by the Washington Post News Service. He has won the Herblock Prize and the Thomas Nast (Landau) Prize. He now lives in New York City and Dummerston, VT.
