To Create....

A place devoted to ALL who have dedicated their lives to the preservation of the Freedoms of this great Country…

A place that, through the honorable display of authentic artifacts, will serve as a podium from which the appreciation for ALL those who have served this great Country will be spoken…

A place to prompt future generations to contemplate the sacrifices and costs of obtaining and maintaining the Freedoms of this great Country.
