New Exhibit -- Hot Spots in the Cold War: Korea and Vietnam
Our “Hot Spots in the Cold War: Korea and Vietnam”, exhibit is due to be unveiled, hopefully this summer or early fall. Our construction started on Monday, May 21st . This exhibit will examine the origins and outcomes of America’s involvement in Korea and Vietnam, with a particular emphasis on the contributions and experiences of New York veterans. In addition, the exhibition will also explore the domestic impact of the Cold War from the pervasive fear of global nuclear warfare to the debates and protests that divided the nation at the height of the war in Vietnam. Unveiling of the exhibit will be a special event for the Military Museum. More information will follow as our exhibit nears completion.
