For any of The America's crew who may have served onboard the Intrepid, here is an opportunity to share your story.

April 2015 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. To commemorate this anniversary, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will open a temporary exhibition about the Vietnam War in the spring of 2015. As many of you know so well, Intrepid was one of more than twenty U.S. Navy aircraft carriers deployed to Vietnam. The ship and crew served three tours of duty in the Vietnam War between 1966 and 1969.

The Intrepid Museum’s exhibition will use the experiences of Intrepid’s crew as a lens for understanding the history of the war with a particular emphasis on the role of the U.S. Navy. The exhibition will use the Museum’s largest artifact undefined the aircraft carrier Intrepid undefined to convey the day-to-day experiences of the sailors, aviators and marines who served on board the ship in the Gulf of Tonkin.
