This is dedicated to the women who served their country. I had an Aunt who was an Army nurse during WWII and I can really appreciate this for her sake.

Many interesting items to see in the museum. The former military servicewoman who was our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enhanced my appreciation for what I was seeing. Do not miss the quotations on the rooftop.
