This museum and Veteran’s Monument involves an unusual method of honoring and perpetuating the history of our armed services by telling stories from individuals’ viewpoints.

The Memorial is divided into inside and outside displays. The inside focuses on individual memories exhibited on panels, complete with with relics, letters, uniforms, and other displays.PSX_20180311_132517

Outside features a beautifully laid out and manicured memorial complete with a 1/2 scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial that used to be a travelling wall display prior to its purchase by New Mexico.PSX_20180311_132611

There are also granite memorials for every conflict we lost people in. PSX_20180311_132723

I left this memorial with a sense of awe, grateful for the work done by those who created it.
