As Thanksgiving approaches, we have much to be thankful for here at the National Archives. We are grateful for the records we hold in trust, & for a mission that lets us serve the democracy & the people of this Nation.
I will also give thanks this year for the industrious staff at the National Archives, especially those whose hard work & dedication has led to the opening of our newest exhibition, Remembering Vietnam: Twelve Critical Episodes in the Vietnam War. As a Vietnam Veterans, telling the story of the Vietnam War & giving a voice to both sides is especially important to me.
The exhibit examines 12 critical episodes in the Vietnam War to provide a framework for understanding the decisions that led to war, events and consequences of the war, and its legacy. This 3,000-square-foot exhibit uses more than 80 original records from the National Archives â including newly declassified documents â to critically reexamine major events & turning points in the war. The exhibit is open now through January 6, 2019.
From all of us at the National Archives, we wish you a peaceful Thanksgiving.
