A Salute to Veterans
Armed Forces Exhibit
The entry to our main exhibit room features a salute to the men and women who have served the United States during the Civil War and World War I through Vietnam. The display includes uniforms, documents, medals and photos donated by local veterans and their families.*
American Gold Star Mothers Exhibit
The entry room of the museum includes a tribute to the American Gold Star Mothers. The AGSM was formed during World War I by a group of 25 women who had lost sons in combat. The organization's charter expanded to include mothers of men and women killed in combat during later conflicts providing ongoing awareness of the sacrifices of veterans and their families.
*NOTE: The museum would welcome the contribution of a desert uniform, photos, and other articles related to Desert Storm and subsequent operations. The items would be displayed with honor in the name of the contributors.
