50 Years Beyond
The Vietnam Veteran Experience
The Virginia War Memorial is proud to be collaborating with two women veterans on the new exhibition “50 Years Beyond,” opening in January 2023.
Professional photographer, Laura Hatcher (U.S. Navy, retired) and videographer Pamela Vines (U.S. Army, retired) are traveling the state with Memorial staffers to photograph and document the experiences of Virginia’s Vietnam Veterans over the past 50 years.
Their photographs and footage will be used to create a comprehensive experience for viewers of the exhibit and will be shared alongside candid photos of 50 of Virginia’s veterans during their time in Vietnam. Check out these short clips for a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the exhibition.
