In June 1966, the Army Vietnam Combat Artists Program was established as part of the United States Army Art Program, utilizing teams of soldier-artists to make pictorial records of U.S. Army activities in the course of the Vietnam War for the annals of military history. Nine Combat Artist Teams (CATs) consisting of five soldier artists each operated in Vietnam. The soldier artists spent 60 days of temporary duty (TDY) in Vietnam gathering information and making preliminary sketches of U.S. Army related activities. The teams then transferred to Hawaii for an additional 75 days to finish their work.
This category was created to identify articles related to the program itself and the soldier artists who participated in the program.
