My son is a history/war buff. We dropped by this impressive memorial after a day downtown. The displays and donated items had extensive stories behind them. It was a short visit but the building is fitting tribute to those who served our country.

This free attraction is very interesting to see the uniforms and weapons that were used at wartime in the past. There is not much to see but it made me appreciate our fallen soldiers even more.
