I plan to make a run with my deuce to the Nixon Library in conjunction with the U.S. National Archives Vietnam exhibit.

Tentively Fri. Dec. 29 or Sat. Dec. 30.

A few of my co-workers and several in my family and friends are Vietnam vets; I don't know if any will also be going.

Anyone wanting to meet please post here.

Looks as good as when you sent the pics after you painted it! That was a fun, good truck. I kinda miss it. Good memories. After I saw pics of your other trucks, I knew it was going to a good home.

Sounds like fun. Just received historic plates for my 5ton. If its running (some days yes, others not so much), can I join the gathering or is this for Vietnam era MV specifically? Is there a flyer with additional details?

As additional information, the National Archives exhibit (which is touring the U.S.) is a Vietnam War-specific pictorial presentation.

P.S.: I realize links fail after time, but this is a temporary event.

As usual, family responsibilities are interfering with plans for fun.

I will NOT be able to make it to this event.

I hope anyone else who goes will enjoy the drive and let the rest of us know how the National Archives display looked!

Best Regards,
-Ken
