The VIETNAM Revisited Combat Bivouac at the Pennsylvania Military Museum offers visitors an up-close, immersive experience into the sights, smells, sounds, and tactics of American involvement in Southeast Asia circa 1968-69. Visitors may tour the American and North Vietnamese camps, go out on patrol (good footwear and trousers advised), and observe combat action in the recreated ambush scenario at 1:45 p.m.
An "in-processing" sign greets all visitors to the firebase. 0825 is the numerical designation for the museum within the state bureaucracy. PHMC is the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. BHSM stands for Bureau of Historic Sites and Museums. Veterans are encouraged to autograph the front with their name, rank, and years of service. On the reverse they may place their physical location in-country.
