The Vietnam War Chronology

  START TO FINISH:
A painting depicting the Gulf of Tonkin incident in August 1964 (top - National Archives photo) and the evacuation of Saigon in April 1975 (bottom - Courtesy of FallofSaigon.org).

Beginning with American involvement during World War II, with OSS assistance to the Vietnamese resistance fighters, to the evacuation of Saigon on April 30, 1975, the role of the U.S. in Vietnam will be chronicled throughout the museum.

The introduction of advisers, the first helicopter companies, and the Gulf of Tonkin incident set the stage for the introduction of major ground combat units, both Army and Marines, in Vietnam. The on again, off again, bombing campaigns against the North, the TET Offensive, the Paris peace talks, the withdrawal of U.S. combat forces, and the eventual fall of South Vietnam will be examined in depth.
