How did the Gulf of Tonkin lead to more U.S. involvement in Vietnam? How did the Tet Offensive change the war for Vietnam and the United States? How are the lives of those we lost remembered today? With this traveling trunk learn about key events in Vietnam, what the soldiers wore and did to survive, with key objects including uniforms, American rations and historical photographs and magazines.
