Full of history..... give yourself at least 4 hours to visit and take it all in. Free admissions. They would like a donation to help cover the cost of running the property.

So many awesome exhibits and items to see. Depicts the battles we fought in small venues with details, dates and facts concerning each battle. Whole area and wall of honor award recipients given by our former presidents. Visit, you will be glad you did!

WanderingBob2016 The Gulf of Tonkin incident was not false. Try studying history, rather than relying on leftist propaganda. There were WMDs in Iraq. See the 14 Oct 2014 New York Times article - U.S. Intelligence Documents on Chemical Weapons Found in Iraq. Typically, the Times refuses to acknowledge that the weapons found were not accounted for and weren't in the U.N.-sanctioned WMD depots. The Times never wants to acknowledge anything that supported the war. I helped the search for those weapons. They were there. You weren't, but they were. I was in ROTC during the late 70's. I was not allowed to wear my uniform on campus, unless we were in groups to avoid harassment and attack. As a kid, I saw the way leftists turned on our troops. They were disgusting. The war was lost in Vietnam due to a leftist Congress, not because of our troops efforts or the South Vietnamese themselves. If you have the guts, read Black April: The Fall of South Vietnam, 1973-75 by George Veith to understand why, I've read every book on the fall of the South, and it is without compare. There is no doubt that without our sacrifice to keep South Vietnam free for 10 more years, Southeast Asia would have fallen to the communists, and we probably would have seen a third World War. (You'd have to study history to know that.) McNamara quit because his plan of strategic bombing was shown to be a farce. He and Lemay were idiots. The war had to be won, as with all wars, the hard way, by infantry, supported by artillery, armor and air - combined arms. I'm glad your father and your son had the guts to serve. I've been to war several times and have lost many friends to war. I hate it far more than you do, since you never went, but I also know that it is often the only recourse for freedom and security.
