MUSEUM OF THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY IS A MEMORY ARCHIEVE OF THE VIETNAM WAR

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Time slips away in its silver source, for those who lived through events of the past, it vanishes like dreams, some joyous and others in numbing sadness. For those who grew up in the Valley in the early 1960s, the troubles in far away Vietnam seemed only the rumblings of the "cold war" that resulted from earlier conflicts in World War II and the Korean Conflict. Boys, young men and women joined the Valley's Reserve units more from patriotism than an impending military draft. But, war was to come with mounting headlines and seductions.
By 1964, sleepy National Guard bases and Reserve units, were no longer weekends of passive drills and two week summer adventures. War was the reality of draft cards, fear and interrupted lives.
Today, The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is collecting and carefully preserving the voices of the Vietnam War era. Story by story, artifact by artifact, We've only a few weeks away now from a Museum workspace. Won't you consider becoming a volunteer members of our Museum Associates? We will need a dedicated committee of men and women, determined to present the Valley's military story to today's and future generations.
