In honor of the opening of our exhibit, “Remembering Vietnam,” we invite you to participate in our new social media campaign.


What: Join us on Twitter and Instagram to share your memories, letters, documents, photographs, mementos, and collections related to the people who experienced the conflict in Vietnam.


Who: Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums, and other institutions are welcome. We would also love to see personal artifacts, photographs, and documents from the public, including soldiers and civilians who served in Vietnam, protesters, Vietnamese-Americans, refugees, and others.


How: Each day will have its own theme--all you need to do is share a related document, photo, image, or artifact using the hashtag #RememberingVietnam on Twitter and Instagram.


When: The campaign will start on Monday, November 6, and end with the exhibit opening on Friday, November 10.
