The trunks include reproduced artifacts that fourth through twelfth grade students will be able to experience hands-on. Pieces available in the Vietnam trunks include fatigues, helmets, rations, insignia, tools, rescue equipment, and more. The suggested activities included in the teacher's manual are based on national curriculum standards, and include reproduction primary sources from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Archives, music, film, and more.
