On the one hand, this photo of a young John Smith of the Smithsonian’s John Smith Museum in Washington, D.C., is a reminder of the war and the sacrifices that were made to win it.
On the other, it’s a reminder that there’s a lot of work to be done in the United States to build up a memorial that honors the many men and women who served.
But the photo has another side: It’s a photo of John Smith, the curator of the museum’s museum collection.
John Smith died in 1965.
In a recent PBS documentary, John Smith was honored by President Lyndon B. Johnson for his work to preserve and protect the history of the United State.
Johnson named Smith as one of the “50 Greatest Americans” of American history and he also called him “one of the most outstanding collectors in the history … of the art world.”
Smith was a key figure in the Vietnam war, and his photography of American troops in the country’s largest urban center, Vietnam, has become a rallying cry for veterans and their families.
In the decades that followed, Smith’s photographs became part of a nationwide campaign to bring the war home, and in 2012, Smith was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
In this image from an exhibition at the John Smith Gallery, Smith is seen posing with a Vietnam War veteran in a photograph from 1965.
The museum photo, which was taken in 1964, has gone on to become a kind of national emblem.
Smith was one of many American photographers to capture the fighting in Vietnam, as well as to create portraits of the American people who were fighting for freedom.
And his images of the troops, the battlefields, and the American landscape have become icons of American art.
The John Smith Collection, an exhibit of Smith’s work, opens to the public on Saturday, Sept. 26.
It is housed in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
