A Thousand Words by Vietnam Veterans

A Thousand Words by Vietnam Veterans

Community Event, Art Show
The exhibit images—taken by North Carolina soldiers and assembled by Winston-Salem photographer Martin Tucker, focus on the human elements of war, offering visitors the chance to see how the troops themselves chose to remember their time in Southeast Asia.

The images offer a glimpse into a turbulent time period in U.S. history depicting what everyday life was like for those in uniform in Vietnam.
Soldiers Life was an unknown to most Americans in the 1960s and 1970s. What was it like to the 18-20 year old men on the ground? Some focused less on war and more on the experience—their friendships, the Vietnamese people, the countryside, the longing for home.
Each photograph is accompanied by a veteran’s commentary on what the image means to him. The exhibit includes a Missing Man vignette, reminding visitors of those who did not return home.
The exhibit runs through January 5, 2020, at Mountain Gateway Museum, 24 Water Street in Old Fort. The museum is open year-round, 9-5 Tuesday through Saturday, and 2-5 Sunday.
Admission is free.
