March 29, 2017 will mark 44 years since United States troops left Vietnam (March 29, 1973). The war, which lasted longer than a decade, resulted in the death of more than 58,000 U.S. troops. Of those, 896 were from South Carolina. A memorial inside the Patriots Point Vietnam Experience Exhibit recognizes the ultimate sacrifice of these men and women. More than 3 million Americans served our country in the Vietnam War.
Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is a registered partner of the Department of Defense’s Vietnam War 50th Anniversary Commemoration.
