A little difficult to get to but worth seeing history. Volunteers have done a great job of setting up displays covering all combat eras. Free but donations appreciated.

We found this wonderful little museum on the internet and decided to visit. It's on a base so you have to provide some identification. Small but informative. We enjoyed it. Take your time. It's worth it.

Lots of uniforms & arms on display to give the visitor a visual walk through time which depicts the US armed forces roles throughout the world, one decade to another.
