Welcome Home: Oklahomans and the War in Vietnam

Opening November 6, 2017

This new exhibit will explore the impact of the war on Oklahoma families as told through the stories of the young men and women who served their country in the armed services, and the immigrant families who fled Vietnam and came to Oklahoma seeking freedom and opportunity.

By connecting the dots of history, the exhibit will provide a contemporary portrait of Oklahoma diversity set against the backdrop of historic events. Welcome Home: Oklahomans and the War in Vietnam will feature a newly acquired Huey helicopter donated by native Oklahoman Bob Ford, who said, "Any Army pilot or crew member who had the privilege to fly the Huey in combat loves it; it never let us down."
