Picturing Nam: U.S. Military Photography of the Vietnam War 6/16/2018 10:00 AM - 10/21/2018 5:00 PM
Photographs are a powerful part of our collective memory of the Vietnam War. Many of the iconic photographs were taken by photojournalists working for newspapers, magazines, or wire services. But there were also military photographers in Vietnam serving in our armed forces. They took thousands of photographs that covered every aspect of the conflict ?photographs that are now a part of our National Archives. Military photographers were sent everywhere: the jungles and swamps, forward bases, hospital ships, rivers, and air bases. Unsanitized and uncensored, these indelible images give an intimate view of the war and those who fought it. The exhibition, divided into three themes, includes over 40 photographs, murals, and first-hand accounts from the men and women who documented American Armed Forces activities in Vietnam.
