A Tangible Lesson on Honor and SacrificeThe museum is tucked away in an unassuming and almost hidden corner of Northgate Mall. I had to ask mall security for directions but am glad that I did. The exhibits are top-notch and professionally laid out in a chronological and visually appealing journey through deeds of sacrifice and honor. The volunteers who conduct the guided tour are extremely knowledgeable and are guaranteed to keep your interest through the entire presentation. They are ready to answer your questions with knowledge, enthusiasm, and genuine interest in the items displayed throughout the location. The tour is delivered with a due amount of respect for those who have earned this highest award, refreshing in today's "me" society.
Between tours I had the chance to chat with the two volunteers on the premises that day. Collectively we spanned several decades of service and more than a few conflicts and took the opportunity to laugh at each other's jokes and tell some tales from various deployments, some tall and some not so much. Be sure to take the entire family. There is no cost for admission, but I spent a few dollars on souvenirs and donated the change to the museum. So little compared to those who have given so much.
