A Little Gem of a Museum - Home of the Brave

Ever since reading an article about this museum in Midweek, it has been on my mind to visit it. Actually, this little museum is not really open to the public because of a parking problem. At the present time, it is the final stop of the Home of the Brave tour. But we (three very happy ladies) got a personal tour by the curator. If you click the Midweek link above, you can read all about this World World II museum created to honor the brave men and women who served in our military.  All of the items were donated to the museum.  There is also a wall of heroes to honor the greatest generation when they visit the museum. Sadly, many are passing away.

I highly recommend this tour to visitors and kamaaina alike.  We really need to keep this part of American history alive.  Oh, by the way, the Home of the Brave Brewseum will be opening in the near future.  Stay tuned.

The following are photos.

As always, you can click the photos for better viewing.
