|Veteran Paul Cox stands next to his own picture taken when he took part in a campaign supporting peace for Vietnam. He once fought in Vietnam in 1969 – 1970.
At the exhibition, Nguyen Van Manh, HUFO Vice Chairman and General Secretary, said Vietnam – US relations have grown stronger in the past 20 years via friendly exchange programmes of politicians, scholars, veterans, and students of the two countries.
A large number of US veterans have returned to Vietnam to take part in local charity programmes and helped promote understanding about Vietnamese people and culture in their home country, he added.
The exhibition lasts until April 15.
