The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is the latest venue for the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service’s exhibition, Picturing Nam: U.S. Military Photography of the Vietnam War. Photographs are a powerful part of our collective memory of the Vietnam War. Military photographers stationed in Vietnam took thousands of photographs that covered every aspect of the conflict—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. Unsanitized and uncensored, these indelible images give an intimate and ground up view of the war and those who fought it. The exhibition is divided into three themes, Landscapes, Objects and Faces. Location: Rose Hills Foundation Gallery.
