VIETNAM GRAFFITI PROJECT

 

The Vietnam Graffiti Project (VGP) was formed in 1997, following the discovery of historic graffiti-inscribed berthing canvases aboard the troopship General Nelson M. Walker, by Art and Lee Beltrone. The ship was anchored in Virginia’s James River “Ghost Fleet.”

Art Beltrone served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves from 1965-1967.

The project's mission was to tell the stories of the young soldiers going to Vietnam aboard the ship in 1966 through graffiti left on the canvases.

In 2007 the project’s Marking Time: Voyage to Vietnam exhibit opened at the

United States Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C., and traveled to more

than 70 venues throughout the United States. The VGP has donated Walker artifacts to

numerous museums and historical organizations throughout the United States. Learn more
