The exhibit will be on display for a year, closing on July 16, 2016. The Vietnam War was the longest war in American history up until the 21st century. Between the years of 1962 to 1975 American forces fought to prevent the growth of communism. Iowa sent 115,000 men and women who served in all branches of the military, most in country for 365 days. Their stories, from the mun- dane to the painful reality of combat, tell of a war that was unlike previous United States engagements. Back home the war became a polarizing issue. Some politicians and civilians questioned the war's necessity and strategy as American casualties mounted. But for those who served, Vietnam became a defining moment in their lives. Most American troops served honorably - all sacrificed and some sacrificed all. The exhibit will express a more personal side of the war by weaving together a timeline with individual sto- ries of Iowans. Stories will be told that cover all branches of the service - from the foot soldier to support groups whether on land, air or sea. Artifacts, photographs, video footage and audio recordings will enhance the storyline that reflects over 13 years through the 1960s and into the 70s. To the Veterans of the Vietnam War, we say Welcome Home! Friday, July 17, at 6 p.m in Downtown Water- loo, the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum will also be holding a Welcome Home Parade honoring all Vietnam Era Veterans. To participate in this parade visit ww .gmdistrict.org/welcomehomeparade. Viewing this exhibit is included with regular museum admission: Adults $10, Children 4-13 and Veterans $5. Vietnam Era Veterans, GMD Members and children 3 & under are free. For more information call 319-234- 6357 or visit www.GMDistrict.org.
