Parking and admission are free (a small donation to the museum is appreciated). This new series is an opportunity for veterans and those interested in the war and its legacy to gather on a monthly basis to honor, remember and understand this tumultuous time.
Saigon was captured by the North Vietnamese Army on April 30th 1975 effectively ending the Vietnam War. Marine Corps officer John Murray served as the USMC logistical officer during this event making sure that American evacuation helicopters were operational and overseeing the dumping overboard of escaping Vietnamese helicopters, for which there was no room on American ships. American military and civilian personnel and Vietnamese will discuss their experiences surrounding the fall of Saigon and the after effects of the North Vietnamese victory.
