Thank you, all for photo help!

Thank you for your help identifying the gun in the photo. In the history museum, one of our main goals is to have the visitor see an image, artifact, or presentation and share with each other what that means. Everyone brings a different point of view-we encourage that to be shared so everyone is richer. Not to belabor the point, but the very first object visitor's will encounter when they visit the 1968 Exhibit is a real Huey helicopter-which we (me and a bunch of vets) are having fun in the shop preparing for display. The exhibit is a challenge to each of us to ponder our experience in 1968 (and tell our kids and grandkids). A lot of stuff happened-good and bad. Thanks again for the help! I'm off to find a Mossberg 390.

I agree, that gun is innocent but the holder of said gun...

What is the name of this museum? and location.

Had an Uncle went to Nam, he did 3 tours, made him a DI in SD, he crashed his caddy and died there.

My good friend flew hueys in NAM, still has his 357 issue.

BPs had what to do with NAM? They were on the lines of malcolm x, did more to hurt the movement than they helped it.

Are you doing anything on the chicago 7? Was for the dem party convention for the 68 election.

I lived in chi town in 1968, were a few riots there.

Good read : "Fear and loathing on the campaign trail" Dr. Hunter Thompson

Interesting summary of the high points of 1968. That was the year I finished high school.
