Museum Honors WWII Veterans

By Kathleen Tomlin

September 2, 2020 will mark the 75th Commemoration of the End of World War II; a war that took the lives of over 405,000 U.S. military personnel. The “Mighty Mo,” which now rests on the hallowed waters of Pearl Harbor, is a reminder of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in restoring peace to the world. Even though the Museum is not yet open to the public because of the pandemic, volunteers have been busy doing various things to prepare for the opening. In honor of World War II (1939 – 1945) they decided to honor the men and women of World War II with a window display for the summer. We hope you enjoy it. We are being told that we can probably open very soon. We have missed our patrons and cannot wait to see you again. Call 456-6066 with any questions.
