Soldiers Returning: Coming Home from Vietnam

Exhibit at the Watkins

About this event

Over three million Americans served in the Vietnam War; they returned home to a fractured nation. Lacking support systems and an understanding community, Vietnam veterans created organizations and networks to support each other. In the following decades, many local veterans found ways to process their war memories through books, articles, and poetry. This exhibit expresses, in their own words and through artifacts and photographs, the difficult, and often painful, Vietnam veteran experience in America.
