Interesting thing to look at I guess. Drawing you inside a not very clean fast food joint to look at it is kinda sad though. There were also some Navajos discreetly selling fake jewelry at the tables outside the door.

We were delighted with this exhibit as this is such an important, but little known history of the Navajo contribution to our victories in the Pacific theater in WWII.

We enjoyed this small historical and important exhibit. Thank you to the families who are sharing these artifacts and memories of the soldiers who provided n important service during WWII. Beautifully curated and I would recommend a stop!
