    RICHMOND, Va. (August 14, 2019) Yoonjo Lee, senior conservator deputy at the Conservation Branch, Collection Management Facility, Naval History and Heritage Command, uses distilled water to clean the planks of a Vietnamese watercraft called a sampan. The sampan was captured by river patrol forces in 1968 while it was transporting ammunition to the Viet Cong near Saigon. The artifact will be a part of a new exhibit at the Hampton Roads Naval Museum entitled “The Ten-Thousand Day War at Sea,” highlighting the U.S. Navy’s involvement in the Vietnam War. The Conservation Branch is tasked with analyzing and conserving, as well as ensuring the proper care and preservation of the Navy’s historical artifacts such as ships’ bells, equipment, arms, ordnance, uniforms, personal equipment, and plaques.
