American Wartime Museum’s Open House (Aug 20 - 21)!

I enjoyed this during my Vacation this month and thought I'd share it here with you all as well;







Saturday & Sunday, August 20th & 21st, 2011, 10:00 AM

very generation pays for freedom, sometimes at great cost. When the price is military conflict, the American people go to war, not just the armed forces. At home and abroad, Americans answer the call. These conflicts call for bravery, leadership, service, and sacrifice from millions of men, women, and families, and this immense effort transforms the participants and the nation.

The National Museum of Americans in Wartime™ is dedicated to telling this story of American’s courage and sacrifice in wartime and the ways in which the nation’s wars have changed the lives of its citizens.

Visitors will encounter the story indoors and out, in combat landscapes, computer interactives, operational tanks and planes, multimedia experiences, public programs, and exhibition galleries filled with thousands of historic artifacts. Together, they will offer every visitor a deeper understanding of the lives of their fellow Americans in wartime and the responsibilities of freedom
