Topeka - Kansas Museum of History - Museum After Hours

The Naval War in Vietnam
Dr. John Kuehn, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College

Explore the U.S. Navy’s operations in support of the conflict in Vietnam from the Gulf of Tonkin “incident” to the Navy’s role in the final frantic evacuation in 1975. Examination of the little known maritime operations such as “Market Time” and “Sealord” will highlight the advantages, not fully appreciated, that fighting in Vietnam gained by the U.S. having de facto command of the air and sea in the extensive coastal waters of the theater.

The Kansas Museum of History is open until 6:30 p.m., admission is half price after 5 p.m. The Museum Store is also open until 6:30 p.m.
