There are special exhibits to those who earned the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross.

  • This is definitely a great place to visit and see all the exhibits honoring our vets. Much to see. I recently donated ( in his name ) a large collage picture about Pearl Harbor that belonged to my late husband. I know this is what he would have wanted. He was very impressed with this place. I only took one picture because this man was from a city I grew up in.
