This is very informative and put together very well. I actually found a relative of mine on the wall from WWII that came from South Dakota when my grandparents moved to SE Iowa. I was able to do research and found it was my great, great uncle.

After passing this museum several times over the years, we had time available to see it this trip. It was well worth the time and admission charge. Displays are professionally prepared. The exhibits are generally arranged chronologically starting with WWI. The names of all armed service men and women killed in battle are displayed.
