GALLERY X - EPILOGUE

The aftermath of the Vietnam War will look at the steps toward reconciliation and understanding that have taken place in the more than thirty years since the war's end. For many years, veterans from this era felt unappreciated and overlooked. Images in the popular media reinforced those images, and reflected the homecoming many of them experienced.

Yet, many Vietnam veterans began working to establish veteran's support groups, build memorials to those who served, and keep alive the POW/MIA attempt to locate those who remained unaccounted for. Many Vietnam veterans have risen to levels of prominence in politics, entertainment, and the business world, and these accomplishments will be recognized here.

The steps to normalize relations with Vietnam, their moves toward a market economy, the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc will all be examined in an effort to determine whether we truly "lost" the war in Vietnam, in a global sense.
