Leatherneck Gallery - Vietnam War Era Tableau
National Museum of the Marine Corps
200 sq ft
A new exhibit opened in the Leatherneck Gallery at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in early 2016 that depicts Marines heading for cover as they exit a Vietnam-era Sikorsky UH-34D helicopter during Operation Starlite in 1965. A series of life-cast figures in uniform were modeled from active duty Marines and a Corpsman.
