Vietnam War

Vietnam veteran and museum curator Terrie Gulden created this amazing bunker scene replica of Hill 1001 near Dak To.  The scene replicates a photo sent to him by one of his buddies from Round Lake, Minnesota.  The display replicates the stations of many of our brave men and women who served during the Vietnam War.
