War Remnants Museum Exhibit Curated by Ron Carver
Exhibit opens March 19, 2018
On March 19, 2018 a War Remnants Museum Exhibit in Ho Chi Minh City, will open featuring US soldiers who opposed the war in Vietnam. The photo being installed in the picture here is by Harvey Richards taken October 12, 1968 at the GI march against the Vietnam War led by uniformed soldiers.
Among the soldier was Navy nurse Susan Schnall, shown leading the march and then speaking at the rally at the San Francisco Civic Center. The War Remnants Museum exhibit is the final stop for a Veterans tour of Vietnam war locations, 50 years later. The tour contributes funds to removing mines and caring for the victims from old battlegrounds still undergoing recovery from the war.
