Marking Time: Voyage to Vietnam was featured on CBS's April 25th Evening News. Randall Pinkston has more on this discovery.

Marking Time: Voyage to Vietnam is a national touring exhibit, featuring artifacts from the troopship General Nelson M. Walker. Included in the exhibit is an original eight-person berthing (bunk) unit recovered from the ship. It is outfitted with original bedding and bright, orange-colored life vests found on the Walker when the vessel was scrapped in 2005. Historic graffiti-inscribed berthing canvases are included for wall display, and personal stories of soldiers and Marines who made voyages from late 1965 to the end of 1967 can be heard at audio stations. Canvases with graffiti representing states where the exhibit appears are used whenever available. Small artifacts include personal items left behind by soldiers and Marines on their way to Vietnam. Ship safety objects and cleaning supplies are exhibited to interpret the voyage experience.
