GALLERY VI - A WIDER WAR

Following the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, in 1964, American involvement in Vietnam increased as more and more US troops were sent to Vietnam. At its peak, over 500,000 US service personnel were stationed in South Vietnam, with additional support in Thailand, Guam, the Philippines, and Vietnam's territorial waters. Besides the US and South Vietnamese forces, combat and combat support elements from Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, and Taiwan also served in South Vietnam. Their role, as well as the role of Soviet and Chinese advisors to North Vietnam will also be explored in this gallery.

Images of training and combat operations will dominate this gallery, and discussions of some of the more notable and infamous incidents on both sides will be explored. Artifacts will include weapons and uniforms from both sides of the conflict, as well as booby traps and other hazards encountered by soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.
