Every year in early October we host an extraordinary WWII re-enactment at the AHM (Oct. 8th & 9th, 2022). There are over 350 Allied and Axis re-enactors who participate in "Battle for the Airfield." One of the most compelling presentations we host during this living history event is our WWII Veteran roundtable discussion. WWII veterans from all branches of service and rank come to talk about what they were doing during the war. We are looking for more WWII veterans to participate. Do you know an able WWII veteran who would like to join us? If so, please email Hunter Chaney at hchaney@collingsfoundation.org. ... See MoreSee Less

Vietnam War


ZPU-23
– RUS | ANTI-AIRCRAFT GUN

M41 Walker Bulldog – USA | LIGHT TANK

M48 Patton – USA | TANK

PT-76 – RUS | AMPHIBIOUS TANK

The Vietnam War also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam, as the Resistance War Against America was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year.
