Honoring The Brave/ Memorial Room

Welcome to the Memorial Room at the Museum.

Countless numbers of Americans have lost their lives protecting the freedoms and comforts we have at home. Providing a place for public recognition of the sacrifices made by Miami Valley veterans is an important responsibility. The Museum is honored to be part of that recognition.
