Come out to the American Heritage Museum to see our new visitor in the Pacific War Gallery, our Grumman (Eastern built) FM-2 Wildcat carrier-based fighter used by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps during WWII. The Grumman-built F4F Wildcat played a major role in primary air defense of the Pacific fleet in the early stages of the War in the Pacific. Though it was no match for the maneuverable Japanese A6M Zero, it was a tough aircraft that could take a beating, and in the hands of a skilled pilot, could be a match for the Japanese attacker.

We will have the FM-2 Wildcat on display in the museum through the summer - we hope to see you soon! More info on visiting at www.americanheritagemuseum.org/

Vietnam War

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.
