  A very fitting place for this exhibit - in front of the balcony where Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered.

  A somber part of the indoor display - the uniform and memorabilia of Jeff Lucey of Belchertown, MA. He was just as surely a victim of the war. He came back alive, but was depressed. His parents sought help for him but the government did not give him the help that he needed. He died by his own hand, another GI killed by this war and the politicians who sent him to wage it.

Due ot rainy cold weather, the outdoor exhibition, which opened on Friday, was not put out until Sunday. It was set up by 9 am. Even on Sunday, there was a biting cold wind throughout the cloudy day. The museum did not open until 1 pm, and by 4 pm volunteers started to take the exhibit down. Thus, this album primarily shows the work the went into erecting, and taking down, the exhibit.
