As an USAF veteran, I enjoy visiting all types of War Memorial Museums. It is part of our past and we should never our past and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. The Veterans Memorial Museum does not dissapoint. There are exhibits from WWI through the Gulf War. I truly enjoyed the memorial wall highlighting the names of all who have died during the individual wars.

Takes one through a period back in time that for me had me in tears and my heart full of gratitude and pride. Words cannot capture what must be seen in person. Don't pass this amazing museum up, pull in and take your time studying and reading. And as you leave, you will take with you an appreciation and thankfulness for those who put it all on the line for our freedom! Amen!
