BOALSBURG - "Vietnam Remembered" is a new exhibit now on display at the Pennsylvania Military Museum, 51 Boal Ave.
Based on an incident between the U.S and North Vietnamese navies in the Gulf of Tonkin in August of 1964, President Lyndon Johnson asked for, and was granted by Congress, the authorization to use conventional military force to assist "any member or protocol state of the Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty."
The 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution is remembered in a temporary exhibit of soldiers' mementos and memorabilia from the Vietnam War at the museum. The exhibit will run through November.
Collections technician Virginia Waters makes a final adjustment to the newest temporary exhibit, Vietnam Remembered, running now through November at the Pennsylvania Military Museum in Boalsburg.
Guests may view the exhibit and others from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.
