Vietnam Tribute: A Presentation & Exhibit Opening
The new exhibit “From the Ground Up: Air War Vietnam” will feature artifacts from the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum’s collection, the National Museum of USAF, collectors and veterans as well as oral history interviews that bring the drama and courage of the air war to life.
The exhibit is timed in 2018 as part of the 50th Anniversary of peak U. S. involvement in Vietnam and will include content on Operation Arc Light, the B-52 strategic bombers mission in Southeast Asia and Operation Rolling Thunder, the aerial bombardment campaign conducted by the U.S. against the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
The exhibit will be on permanent display and the museum and will take guests from the role of the Forward Air Controller on the ground to the strategic bombing missions of the B-52 above 30,000 and beyond. Though the Tet Offensive of 1968 may have eroded support for the war, the air war in Vietnam remained strong and consistent.
