AARP South Carolina cordially invites you to join us for a private reception of “Picturing Nam”, a photographic display of the Vietnam War sponsored by the National Archives Foundation.
Photographs are a powerful part of our collective memory of the Vietnam War. Many of the iconic photographs were taken by photojournalists working for newspapers, magazines, or wire services. But there were also military photographers in Vietnam serving in our armed forces.
They 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 exhibit is broken into three categories: Landscapes, Objects and Faces.
