During America’s War in Vietnam, tens of thousands of American GIs and veterans opposed the war. They marched, refused to fight and deserted. They wrote and distributed hundreds of thousands of underground newspapers to their fellow soldiers, telling the truth about this unjust war.
Sadly, this history is largely unknown today.
To highlight the important role that soldiers and veterans played in ending the war, we have organized an exhibit and website. It will open at the War Remnants Museum in Saigon on March 19, at the conclusion of the 2018 Veterans For Peace tour of Vietnam. The following day, the Museum will host a conference of American and Vietnamese veterans.
In May we will bring the exhibit back to the U.S., where the University of Notre Dame has invited scholars to submit papers papers (based on the GI Press Project Archives at Wisconsin) examining how the GI Movement helped to end the war.
None of this will succeed if we cannot raise the remaining $7,000 necessary to mount the exhibit.
