The Next Exhibit at the Fort Thomas Museum


SHARE YOUR STORIES

Did you serve during the Vietnam War?  Did you have a family member who served?  Do you have a story or pictures or an artifact you are willing to share?  The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum is planning an exhibit and we need your stories and items so that we may recognize and honor our Vietnam veterans.

The Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum is planning an exhibit honoring our local Vietnam veterans to open in late Spring.

Whether your service was “in country” or stateside, combat or support, we want to say thanks to those who served during the Vietnam War – it is long past time to do so.  We are seeking stories – roughly 1,000 words – about your experiences during the Vietnam War.  We will need to know your branch of service, the time period you served, and the location of your service.  You can write a general summary of your time in service or concentrate on a specific experience or incident.  A picture of you in uniform would enhance your story, and a “Then and Now” set including a current photo would be even better.

Please contact Deanna Beineke, a volunteer with Honor Flight and the Veterans History Project, at beineke@isoc.net or call her at 859-441-3700 for complete information and/or to set up an appointment.
