A 40th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemorative Event
“Children of the April Rain”
A Special Production

The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation is proud to host the Washington, D.C., premiere of “Children of the April Rain,” a production centered on the remarkable evacuation of more than 2,500 babies and children during the historic fall of Saigon. Written by William Bryant Doty, the play is from the book, manuscript and recorded memoirs of nine of the April 1975 “Operation Babylift” participants. Presented as a staged reading by familiar personalities from film, stage and TV, the single performance of this special production is scheduled for 7:00 p. m., November 10, at the Women’s Memorial. A “meet the cast” reception will follow the performance.

“Children of the April Rain” is free and open to the public. Seating, however, is limited. To reserve a seat, RSVP by e-mail to AprilRain@womensmemorial.org or call 703-533-1155/800-222-2294 with number of people attending, and contact phone/email.
