GREAT stories like a B-24 “NIGHT SNOOPER” from VZC and a “waistegunner” who flew 50 missions during WWII. The story of a “boy comes home from Wills Point,” the 50 caliber machine gunner at the “Battle of the Bulge.” The story of Calvin Graham, a 12 year old boy who joined the Navy and fought on the USS South Dakota. A movie was made about his life. A bugle taken from a Japanese guard at the “Bataan Death March,” and much more. A MUST SEE museum if you are interested in military history.
