April 12 @ 8:00 am - June 10 @ 5:00 pm
Vietnam Voices is a history exhibit created by the Western Heritage Center in Billings Montana. The exhibit features the powerful stories of 81 Vietnam veterans. Through individual interviews, a diary of a Montana veteran, and letters written by a Montana pilot who was killed in action, through this exhibit the Western Heritage Center encapsulates the sights and sounds of the Vietnam Conflict, at war and at home. According to the interviews, service men and women encountered very different experiences from 1965 to 1973 and from different areas of Southeast Asia. The Vietnam Voices Exhibit will be on display at the MonDak Heritage Center through June tells the story of common threads of Vietnam veterans in their own words.
In partnership with exhibit sponsors Stockman Bank, the VFW Post 4099 of Sidney, and the American Legion Richland Post #12, the MonDak Heritage Center has added local veteran history to the exhibit. Stockman Bank has loaned the beautiful “No Soldier Left Behind” bronze, book, and video to the MDHC for this exhibit. Several photo albums from local Vietnam veterans are on display along with items from the MDHC Collection.
A Vietnam Voices Exhibit Open House will be held for veterans, their families, and the community over Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 27th from 2-4pm.
