I am a Vietnam Vet, so was very interested in seeing what they had from that era. Worthwhile if you are a Vet or interested in the military.

No matter what your service affiliation was, or if you didn't serve,This museum is a humbling place to visit. It is very well appointed and the layout is very easy to leisurely stroll thru while reading the information and viewing the various articles of clothing and accessories associated with each era. Stop here you won't be sorry.

This is a wonderful commemoration to the military personnel who gave their lives. The 50 soldiers represent one soldier from each of the 50 States. The aircraft flying over the soldiers reminds you that there are 3 services and the Museum itself although a little expensive gives a clear insight to the US Services. Well worth a visit if you are proud of your Military.
