Fifty years ago, military photographs serving in our armed forces took thousands of photographs that covered every aspect of the conflict in in Vietnam—photographs that are now part of our National Archives. Their assignments sent them everywhere: the jungles and swamps, forward bases, hospital ships, rivers, and air bases.

Our new traveling exhibit, “Picturing Nam,” will be on display for the first time at Syracuse, NY, during the Central New York Veterans Parade Expo from November 10 to 12. After that, you can see this exhibit at the Onondaga County Historical Society until January 7, 2017.
