This Museum is not in the realm of ordinary. We are a legacy museum. All of our items donated have a story waiting to be told. We must educate our youth to understand that the price of freedom is not always rewarded with ticker tape parades and confetti. It is our goal to capture the legacy for future generations so that they may understand and fully appreciate the sacrifices of the men and women throughout history.
