War Museum Logo 
This is living history because our staff is made up of military veterans
and history enthusiasts who are present to answer your questions and
share their experiences with you.

Our museum does not glorify war, but shows the best attributes of
men and women caught up in war. In doing so, we respectfully honor
the service of America's veterans.

Visitor's Testimonial:  "I walked through that museum. It only took a
couple of minutes to start to understand what is represented here; the
sacrifice, the patriotism, the old boys talking and laughing and telling war
stories in the other rooms, the realization that freedom ain't free. I got
alone for most of it cause I was crying, reading real life stories, reading
real death stories, and and starting to understand that this country was
and is birthed in blood and I really, really need to appreciate it more than
I already do."   H.B.A.
