Alot of exhibits and history. We found my husbands uncle's name on the wwii wall, who was killed in France. Also found the names of my husbands comrades who died in Vietnam. This is a sacred place to us and recommend very highly.

We were drawn in the by the beautiful statue of 50 soldiers storming the beach in front of the museum. Then you go inside and view all the artifacts they have on hand. Everything is displayed in a respectful manner and lots of personal information about the Veterans that belong to the items shown. Very informative and moving.
