Description: More Than Self: Living the Vietnam War online replicates the brick and mortar exhibition on display at the Atlanta History Center from November 11, 2017 through March 31, 2018. Most of the photographs, many of the artifacts, and all of the oral histories contained in the exhibit are now accessible to users across the globe. This online exhibition tells the firsthand accounts of the men and women who served in Vietnam and Southeast Asia during the war. The Army officer who recalls seeing coffins and body bags being loaded onto aircraft as he arrived in Vietnam; the Navy swift boat commander who remembers the Special Forces team he took into the jungle; the Army nurse who describes humanitarian missions to Vietnamese leper colonies; the Marine Corps veteran who recalls his homecoming: this exhibit covers a broad range of experiences recalled by those who were there and honors their service and sacrifice.
