In the Spring of 2018 this exhibit opened at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, in South Bend, Indiana and at the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam. It is currently touring both the United States and Vietnam. 

 The exhibit informs scholars, students and the general public that as America escalated the number of troops engaged in the Vietnam War, thousands of our soldiers, sailors and pilots refused to fight, sail and fly more bombing missions. Active-duty soldiers and veterans had a profound effect on the antiwar movement, and on the war itself. Material in the exhibit comes from many sources including the new GI Press Collection archive at the Wisconsin Historical Society and the U.S. National Archives.
