Fielding Freed: The Things They Carried-Grunt Gear of the Vietnam War
May 6 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present a lecture by Fielding Freed on Saturday, May 6th, on grunt gear of the Vietnam War.

A grunt once said that with all the gear on his back he felt like a turtle and moved about as quickly. This hands-on program will show some of the gear used and carried by soldiers and Marines during the Vietnam War. Understanding some of the physical demands of jungle warfare starts with the equipment carried by our troops. Historian Fielding Freed will show and discuss original examples including rations, field gear, headgear, uniforms, and the all-important back pack radio used during Vietnam. Veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.

The program will begin at 1:00 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email [email protected]. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.

Loretta Lynn
May 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as artistically and commercially successful – and as culturally significant – as any female performer you’d care to name.  Her music has confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans alike.  The Coal Miner’s Daughter – the tag refers to a hit single, an album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn herself – has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to Nashville superstardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness American icon.  Don’t miss your chance to see an American Legend perform many of her 52 Top 10 hits and 16 #1 singles!
