DA NANG (VNS)  — An exhibition featuring 150 photos, documents and other items displayed for the 40th anniversary of the central city's Liberation Day – March 29 – opened yesterday at the Da Nang Museum.

The exhibition also marked the 50th anniversary of the day the US Marine Corps first landed on the Da Nang beach during the American War: March 8, 1965.

The landing location, called Red Beach Two by the US Marines, is now Xuan Thieu Beach. It belongs to a four-star resort on Nguyen Tat Thanh Street.

The city's Historical Science Association also held a talk about the American War and the country's Reunification Day.

The exhibition will run through the end of March. — VNS
