From Peral Harbor to Hiroshemia

    We are very proud to announce that we have changed or display at the museum to Honor all of the Vetrans who have served our great country from around the time of the Civil War to the present.
     It is so exciting for us that so many people have given us the opportunity to display their families pride in serving, whether at home or overseas.
 So here are just a few of the items we have collected.
                                                        Enjoy looking at them!

The mug Dick Musel was given by the guys on his ship. His ship was the one that picked up the first animal the US shot into space. A Monkey!
 While Time magazine told people about the war "Life" wanted them to see for them selves what was going on!
Posters like this have been used in times of war for hundreds of years.
this one is from WWI
 These are actually mortar shells. This is known as "Trench Art"
 While the soldiers were setting around with nothing to do, and I guess in WWI  that happened a  lot. The soldiers would carve pretty much anything they could get their hands on and mortar shells were plentiful.
