The Coronado Historical Association presents the Open Doors: Vietnam POWs Fifty Years of Freedom Exhibit
Open with free admission through National POW/MIA Day on September 15, 2023.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the return of the Vietnam POWs, Open Doors: Vietnam POWs Fifty Years of Freedom takes a close look at thirty former Vietnam POWs from all branches of the military. Produced by photographer Jamie Howren and author Taylor Baldwin Kiland, this exhibit, sponsored by CACI International Inc and Discover Coronado, captures the subjects’ personalities with photographic portraits and interviews that add verbal color, context, and quotes.
The Coronado Historical Association, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, was founded in 1969 to help people understand and appreciate Coronado’s unique history, art, architecture, and historical resources. We continually work toward these goals to bring the history of Coronado to the community. In our state-of-the-art collections vault, we are carefully preserving everything from 1880s newspapers to vintage garments and over 20,000 photographs. In our Museum, we bring Coronado’s history to life through fascinating exhibitions.
