The United States of America's Vietnam War Commemoration is a Department of Defense office authorized by Congress in 2008 and launched by the President in May, 2012. The History and Legacy Branch of the Commemoration is staffed by professional educators who develop resources that may be viewed online, downloaded, or shipped for FREE to museums, libraries, middle and high schools, and colleges.  

Our posters are full-sized, visually engaging, and easily digestible primers for students. They are especially popular with middle and high school students, and college undergraduates. To view our poster listings, please visit: https://www.vietnamwar50th.com/history_and_legacy/posters/ 

Our teacher's toolkit is a booklet size lesson-planning aid filled with Vietnam War websites, primary and secondary sources, links to education plans, films, books, and more and may be downloaded online at: https://www.vietnamwar50th.com/history_and_legacy/teachers_toolkit/

We also conduct our own oral histories, which may be viewed here: https://www.vietnamwar50th.com/history_and_legacy/oral_history/full_oral_history_collection/

The Commemoration ships posters and teacher's toolkits for free to libraries, museums, and schools. To request materials, e-mail whs.pentagon.wso.mbx.vnwar50th-edu@mail.mil. Please note we cannot ship to PO Boxes.
